After reading Leslie’s list of the materials you need to create your own art journal, I thought I’d take a few snapshots of what I have.

So far, in this photo, I have several tubes of Liquitex heavy body acrylics in several colors, which I pulled from Color Mixing Recipes book by William Powell, a calligraphy pen, a set of black PITT pens and a box of Derwent pencils I bought a 100 years ago.

Acrylic Painting Supplies

In this photo, you can see all the brushes I’ve been collecting over the years and the palette knives I’ve bought recently. (I love painting with palette knives. When I was a kid, I painted a toy bear on canvas with a palette knife and oils, but I don’t know what happened to it.)

I’ve also purchased a few Golden products, some ink pads and a whole pile of other stuff I can’t remember now that I’m sitting in front of the computer.

Now, let’s see what I can create with this…

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love these photos. I love art supply stores. I love your redbird. My daughter’s nickname is redbird. I will post my peach jam recipe next week. We have wild blackberries too, but I have only made jelly out of them. My grandma always cautioned me about the seeds so I never make jam out of them. Have a great day.

  • Hey Tamy! Thank you very much. I enjoy your happy disposition in my class and hope I have 10 more students like you and your daughter next semester. 🙂

  • TerriTORY MOM, I’d love to try out your blackberry jelly recipe, if you’d be willing to share. I love art supply stores, too. I can get in lots of trouble with my wallet in them. hehe
