I can't help myself when it comes to art supplies, no matter how many I already have, there is always something I must have! I went to Michaels the other day to pick up some of their greeting cards, and wouldn't you know it, that had a big sale going on. This is some of the stuff I picked up, I also got a couple of canvases for 60% off. You may want to take a trip there if you want to stock up on art supplies. The Strathmore journals are also on sale but I already have a lot, so only bought a small pack.
This gorgeous scrapbook paper was $10 - keep in mind I'm in Canada so our prices are always higher than the US.
I got some washi tape which I love to use in my journals, and some embellishments- the butterflies and flowers. I have an idea to use in a mixed media painting, so we shall see...I may go back and pick up more.
The last couple of months I have been making mostly ACEOs, rather than larger paintings. Trying to get back into the swing of things after taking over a year off, and only creating a minimal amount. Boy it sure is tricky painting that small, lol! I need glasses to do them now!
I have way too many ideas for art, that I can't seem to focus on just one, that's why you see such a variety of artwork on my blog. I can never be like those artists that finds a niche and sticks with it...oh well, at least I won't be bored!
that's it for now.....thanks for reading!
