Tangled in a Circle

I decided to work on my video Wednesday late morning and quite frankly not the best idea.  I had “A” constantly asking me questions, yelling for me to come kill a spider or asking me to feed her!  I mean she eats all the time and is still thin as a toothpick, I seriously wish…

Gelli Play Wednesdays 5-11-2016

Good morning!! I am so very excited about todays post! I love Gelli printing but all too often I make the prints and they just sit there. I saw a post on Pinterest and just had to try it.  I used the Avery sticker labels (2″ round) as my paper for the gelli prints. Now…

Tag You’re It Tuesday 5-10-2016

Hello! I have to say I had a blast doing this tag!! I do quite a few tags but very rarely do they have the 3D details that this one does. It turned out amazing!!  I think one of my favorite things about it is the shimmer from the silks glazes on the texture of…

Background Gone Wild

Sheesh it has been a busy week and weekend for this household!  “D” had appointments for hair and nails and other last minute shopping for prom, not hers but she was invited by her best friend.  On top of that, “A” had her first sleepover and I stayed the night with her just in case…

New and exciting additions to our blog!!

Good morning! I just wanted to take a quick moment to let you all know that we have some new things we will be adding to the blog! We will have Mixed Media Mondays and Tag You’re It Tuesday! Mondays we will be exploring different art journaling projects as well as other mixed media ideas….

Colorful Comeback Page!

I took a break from art journaling, it’s been well over a month at least.  I started to feel overwhelmed with all these ideas, techniques and products that I just had to take a step back.  I went back to doing Zentangles, which is what got me started on my journey into mixed media and…

Zentangle Materials

Hello everyone!  I was going to do a video of another Zentangle, but I thought it would be a better idea to go through a list of materials I use personally.  Sometimes when we begin doing something in the “art” world, we don’t have a whole lot of money to spend on the best of…

Gelli Play Wednesdays April 27, 2016

Good morning! In this episode of Gelli Play Wednesday I decided to mix things up a bit. I love playing with my Gelli plate but all too often I end up with piles and piles of gelli prints. That is where I lose my inspiration. I never know what to do with them. I eventually…

Abstract Art Journal Page

Good morning! “V” is finally back at school so that meant that I had a little bit of time to get painty. I have been thinking a lot about how people compare their art journals, canvases, tags, Gelli print, or any work of art for that matter, to what another person creates. When I first…

Gelli Play Wednesdays 4-20-16

Good morning! I am sure you all will notice that I am posting Gelli Play Wednesdays on a Friday. We had a little chaos in our household this week. “V” gave us a spectacular bodily function show at 2:00am Tuesday night. Poor thing has the stomach flu. It threw all artsy plans out the window….

Tangled Thursday Part 2

Hello all!  I hope everyone has been having a good week so far.  I am keeping my chatter short because I have been rambling off and on all day, sometimes to myself, looking like a mad woman haha!! Here is part two of last weeks Tangled Thursday.  I hope you enjoy and would love hear…

We have a winner!!

We entered all the names of the people who commented on our photo. I am so glad that we didn’t have to choose! There were so many wonderful captions.  Lisa and I are humbled by the response. 🙂 We used random.org to choose the names of the winners. All names were entered and then they…
