Art Supplies

I often get asked from new art journalers what are the must have supplies.
The list can be very long and quiet expensive this post is a few of
the basics. Its very important not to get overwhelmed or feel like you
can't create beautiful art if you don't have everything out there. 

Paper- this can be anything in the handmade journals I use, I 
have old magazine pages, manila folders, outdated calenders,
even junk mail!! You don't have to spend money paper is everywhere.

Paints- Cheap acrylic craft paint is perfect for art journaling. You can often
 find it for .50 a bottle, grab a few colors and don't forget you can mix it!!

Gesso- You can find this at any craft store or even Walmart.

Glue stick or adhesive- I prefer UHU glue-stick which I purchase on Amazon.

Stencils- You can make your own check out my hot glue stencil video HERE.
You can use produce bags, cut out shapes in cardstock you can use anything.

Pens or Pencils- I like a plain old #2 pencil and my fave pens are the
Uniball Signo 207 Bold and the Uniball Signo white pen.

Collage papers- Almost every single piece I create I use collage elements. 
Scrapbook paper, old letter, maps, magazines, newspaper really anything.

Trying something new

Try something new..... Spice it up.

I have been looking around for a unique purse that was "different" and fit my needs. I like to carry a cross body purse it is easier and not as painful on my shoulder. Anyway I looked and never found one that just "spoke to me" so I decided to paint my own. So you wanna see?? I have completed a few purses and who can have a boring wallet with a cool purse? Nope I had to paint a matching wallet too.

Here is my cross body purse which I LOVE!! I will have a few to sell if you are interested either email me at OR check back on the blog and you will see my post.

How freaking cool is this??

So think outside the box and try something new you never know
what may happen.
