I want to tell you that I have this book, and I love it. Janet and I are each doing the same project from this book and exchanging with each other. Just to see how we both interrupt the directions.
I thought I would show you a few things that I use in my art.. Not that I think that I am the guru of the art world and supplies. I just thought you might be interested.
This is a book I bought awhile ago, I mark all the books I read in it, plus the books on tape, I give them a rating, and this ramble about what was the book was about. I know how anal am I. I used to keep buying the same book thinking that I had not read it before. So this saves me time and money.
2. Scissors, ok I use all kinds of scissors, usually from the dollar store, but I have two go to scissors, when I want good ones, these ones which are Cutter Bee, I like them cause they can maneover really good, and the other pair, Tim Holtz, they have big handles and are comforable in my hand.
This is what I store my individual letters in. I looked and looked for something. On a trip to Arizonia I went in the container store and found this, perfect in every way, holds all the letters, and then I bought one for numbers. Sometimes I just go through magazines while sitting on the couch and cut letters out of magazines, and put them in here. So when you want a letter it is easy to get. Now If i could only find something for whole words
Now here is my visual journal, I have a picture of the front cover down below. I love this journal, I did not make it, I bought it, its the mixed medial journal from Strathmore. The paper can stand up to anything you can throw at it. I have all three sizes. Here is a page in my journal that is in progress, I have gessoed it , and then put book pages etc on it.
The only problem with this type of journal, is it a spiral ,but that does not
bother me, but some people dont like it.
Now remember this pages have just been started, tommorow I will show you what they look like after paint.
so here they are all sizes, big visual journal, med I use as a sketch book, lidea book, watecolour book, the small ones goes in my purse and sometimes I use it to sketch out ideas
The cover on the medium ones all I do is when I find something I like I just add it the front or the back of the cover. and when its finished I varnish the cover.
Now below you can see what I use for white pen. I have issues with pens, white pens, black pens, they
dont seem to last long. I am impaitent and try to use them when its wet and i wreck alot of pens. I have found these three pens work the best for me.
2 of the pens are whiteout pens, 1 bought at staples the blue one, and 1 bought at the dollar store, the white one.
The pen is a Signo pen I think it is 4;00 a pen
Well there it is, some of the supplies I use in my art.
