You can order any of the IO background stamps from Art 'n Soul . . . there are soooo many from which to choose . . . come in and take a look!

Cool Tool

There's a free program out there called zFlick that is great for viewing all of flickr®'s Zentangle-inspired images.

Type in "zentangle" and (the appropriately named) zFlick organizes these images in page after mosaic page of rounded corner square tiles. (These images below are just screen shots, they don't do anything.)

Roll your cursor over any image and to enlarge it.

Click on an image to see it full-size.
