Recently I used my tax return to get a couple things from Dick Blick. I tend to make wish lists on that site and when I have the money I go through the list of wants and I choose something.
After taking Misty's Face to Face class I really felt like I needed a drawing board for my easel. I had tried cardboard and foam core board but both were unsatisfactory. This was the one she recommended. Considering it is made of wood, it is really light.
I added a few new colors to the InkTense pencil set I have.
Then I wanted to try some of these new Catalyst Polytip Brushes that I heard about on Julie Balzer's blog. They are supposed to take a lot of abuse and my smaller brushes are quite a mess. I have debated just tossing them. These new ones look like plastic but I haven't tried them out yet.
Yesterday was a frustrating day so I found myself doodling late at night with my Lamy Safari Fountain Pen. I am really loving that pen. I am thinking I might have to get another one, this time with an extra fine nib. When I got it I made a big mistake of putting India Ink in it. It ruined it and I ended up sending it in for repair. I am using Noodlers Brand Ink with it and it works fabulous now.
