Mixed Media Monday 6/20/16

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  It was a nice relaxing one for us.  Next weekend is going to be busy, busy, busy and I am not sure when I will be able to create or if I will even have time.  Then again, it is summer time and I need to keep the…

Mixed Media Bookmarkers

I love to read and have been known to have several book going at the same time.  My problem is, I don’t like to dog ear a page and I don’t like buying bookmarkers for 2 plus bucks.  Today, I decided to make my own book markers and whatever extras I have, I will give…

Tag You’re It Tuesdays 5-24-2016

Hello everyone!! I am so in love with these tags!! They will be amazing in the project Lisa and I are working on. It was kind of funny to me because as I was creating them I heard her in my head freaking out. This is where our different styles really come through. She would…

Gelli Play Wednesdays 5-11-2016

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…

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…

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…
