Art Supplies

I love sharing art ideas! It can also be so enlightening and fun to try something new. Even for a seasoned artist, the practice of trying something new feels really good.

If art journaling is new to you, buying just a few art supplies is all you need to get started. The best part is, all of these items can be found at the grocery store!

Art journal– A book with blank pages that can range in size. I like to get one small enough to fit in my purse or bag.

Watercolor paint– Paint that only requires water and a brush. Any brand will do! Yes, even the brands that children use. Bonus: All watercolor sets come with a brush.

Permanent pens and markers-I love my thin sharpies! Fun to draw with and nice to write with. If you paint on top of your writing, the ink will not fade.

Crayons-Inexpensive and you can feel like a kid again. Enjoy the nostalgia and the smell!

Let’s start with this! Look out for my next post and I will get you started.
