Gelli Print Junk Journal class

In the last few weeks I took a great online class, Gelli Print Junk Journal with Samie Kira Harding.

First, we learned several Gelli printing techniques. Whether you're new to Gelli printing or not, this class offers great techniques. Here are some of my prints:

Review of Yoga For Your Brain™ card sets

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.

SB tangle boxes

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.

SB cards

You can get more information on the Design Originals website.

[Disclosure: I received a set of cards from the publisher for review.]

The Beauty of Zentangle has arrived

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.
