Just a little doodle…

Wow! Life seems to have really gotten away from me! It has been crazy around here and unfortunately my blogging time has suffered. I am hoping that I can begin to set time aside strictly for me and From Art To Hippos (I mean who am I kidding there is no life outside of what…

My Come Back Journal Page.

Hello everyone!  It has been a great summer and now that both of my kids are in school, kindergarten and high school junior, I have more free time…Free Time!!  I will admit the first couple of weeks, I was a hot mess and had no idea what to do with myself.  I found I would…

Gelli Play Tools

Good morning everyone! It has been such a crazy summer for us here at From Art To Hippos! “V” has been keeping me very busy on her summer break and I am starting to get just as excited as she is for school to start again. This means more play time for me! Lisa and…

Easy Zendoodle on Ink Spray Background

I have to say this week has been an emotional roller coaster for me!  “D” finished her Sophomore year today and continues her journey towards adulthood.  She decided to stay here this summer, instead of going to her dad’s, to work on getting her driver’s license and a job.  For me, that means I will…

Gelli Play Wednesday 6-15-16

Good morning! I was very excited to try out a new technique that I saw for this installment of Gelli Play Wednesday! I love the look of gelli prints that are full of layers. Sometimes I can get them to work and they are amazing. But for the most part I get a muddled mess…

Mixed Media Monday 6-13-16

Good morning everyone! Things have been so very crazy here at home. “V” is home for summer break and that means less time for crafting for mom. We just got a new swimming pool so most of our day is spent outside. With that being said, summer is going to be a bit dicey for…

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…

Make Your Own Spray Inks!!

Good morning! I have gotten a lot of requests for my “recipe” for my spray inks. So I decided to make a tutorial and show you just how I did it. I love bright colors and most of the spray inks I have ever tried to make dried in a light pastel style. This doesn’t…

Gelli Play Wednesdays 6-1-16

Woo-hoo! I made it…on Wednesday! lol! This week I feel like I have been running years behind. Life has been so busy! It is the last 10 days of school for “V” and so there are a lot of things going on. And we are getting a pool (yay!!) so there is that craziness. Today…

Tag You’re It (5/31/16)

Hello everyone,  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend, I know I did!  Of course, it threw my week off hence me being a day late 🙂   I had a marvelous dinner, with my beautiful sister, celebrating her birthday as well as our late Mother’s birthday.  “D” and I got some Wii…

Mixed Media Mondays 5-30-16

Good morning! With this page I decided to play with my gelatos which have not been getting much love lately. Usually when I create I add layer upon layer. Today I decided that I just wanted something simple and bright. It turned out perfect if you ask me. 🙂  I listed the supplies in the…

Tangled Fairy (Part 1)

Hello everyone!  I am a little late with my Tangled Thursday, for that I apologize.  I didn’t realized how time consuming my first attempt at this would be!!  Also, I will admit, that this week has been stressful mentally and kinda put a jinx on my janx. With that being said, we all know about…
