You won't believe the deal I got today
I was in Michaels yesterday and I saw this. A pad of paper for mixed media made by Canson. The paper was really nice so I went to buy one to try it out and they were buy one get one free, what a deal. I went to look at the clearance section where all the golden paint has been and it was all gone. So I asked my favorite clerk if they had just moved it or if someone had come in and bought it all. She said they had sold it in the bins for a $1.00 a piece in the area where you walk in the store. I was a little sorry I had missed that. But she said we have some left and we are going to be making grab bags of it. If I come back tomorrow I should be able to get some.
So I went back this morning and this is what I came home with
I got all of this for $6.00
It looks like a store on my kitchen table. I bought 3 grab bags. They let me go in the back room and just fill up my bags. I got 65 bottles of Golden Fluids, 2 heavy body acrylics, 18 tubes of watercolor paint, 21 small jars of all sorts of mediums. 8 big jars of mediums and 8 jars of Liquitex paints. If I had paid full price this would be at least 700.00 worth of materials. Can you believe it. Some of the mediums I don't even know how to use yet but I have a lot of new stuff to play with. Now I need to find somewhere to put all of it.
