Yum - new supplies!
Bill gave me a gift certificate to Dick Blick for Christmas. It was a great gift because today I went shopping and bought all sorts of fun new supplies that I wanted to try. I picked out two big packs of handmade paper with lots of texture and pattern, a mechanical pencil, lead and erasers. I had sworn off gel pens for a couple years because I always had problems with them drying up, but after Wendy and I played with hers yesterday I just had to get some. So picked out a sent of 10 glittery ones and I bought a new kind called "glaze" gel pens. They are awesome! When they dry, the ink is raised and looks like it was heat embossed! And... a Picasso calendar and an Andy Warhol magnet. And a portable watercolor set that I'm planning to take on our honeymoon this summer and a 192 page sketchbook that I'm going to use as my 2006 art journal. Ok, so you could have figured out most of that from looking at the picture - but I'm excited!
