Sandy Steen Bartholomew is one of the most prolific and loved author of Zentangle books. If you love Sandy's tangles, these card sets are for you.
The three card sets each contain 40 cards, each with the step-outs for one of Sandy's tangles. They are nicely portable for easy reference when you're traveling with your Zentangle supplies. Also, if you're not sure what tangle to use next, you can pick one at random. Bonus cards also explain the basics of the Zentangle drawing method.
There are two sets based on the books Totally Tangled and Yoga for your Brain™, as well as a Kids Edition. If you create tangles, you can also buy a set of blank tangle cards.
You can get more information on the Design Originals website.
[Disclosure: I received a set of cards from the publisher for review.]
In a previous blog post, I talked about being included in this book of original artwork by Zentangle artists. I have received my copy of the book, as well as the special numbered limited edition. They include my purple Zendala which is one of my favourite drawings. You can get more information on the Design Originals website.
Yesterday, I did a demo of the Gelli Plate at the meeting of the St. Thomas-Elgin Artists Guild meeting.
Here is my setup:
I also introduced some custom stencils I had made from my artwork:
Here are some photos from my demo:
Finally, in case you were wondering, I painted my top with spray inks, monoprinting with the Gelli plate, and stamping.

I've been playing some more with paint and my Gelli Plate. I have also experimenting with using pen & ink and coloured pencils to embellish the print. Here are a few embellished prints:
You can see a few more on Flickr.
And here are a few more prints. You can see the three prints I get with one setup. One through the stencil, one of the back of the stencil, and a second print from the plate after removing the stencil. The ones below were done with Joggles stencils.
You can see even more on Flickr.
And here is the result of my first experiment making "Gelli tape", i.e., printing on packing tape:
