Art supply goodness
This year for my birthday I asked for money for art supplies. There were things I wanted that I had to buy online so this is what I got. It doesn't look like much but I had to order from three separate places which meant paying for shipping 3 times, I hate that. These were items I really wanted so I was willing to put up with the shipping.
Gel pens, I really love the Uniball Signo Broad Gel pens. They come in tons of colors but I really like the black and white
Ahh some golden fluids, may favorites. The cobalt and raw umber are refills but the others are new colors for me. I do have the Manganese blue and Indian Yellow Hue in their heavy bodied versions. They are both fab colors so I wanted them in the fluid versions too. The Burnt umber light is a new brown to try.
These are dauber caps, the screw on to craft paint bottles. This way you can use your own favorite colors or mix new ones. Ranger sells their paint with the caps already there but I want to make some of my own with goldens and folk art paints.
I wanted to try some of the new Strathmore journals. Since I have 2 of the Canson Mixed media ones I went for a watercolor journal. The interesting thing is that the cover is paper that you just tear off. The real cover is thick and is a brown alligator like surface. It was shiny so it didn't photograph well. I am looking forward to trying this out.
