SUPPLIES YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT

MY PROLEM…

I have a bit of a problem – I need to confess to before we even start. You see I’m a bit of an art supply hoarder. It literally happens every year – especially around my birthday when I’m blessed with some extra dollars to add to my wallet and the extra blessing of being able to spend them however I wish. So when given the option to “blow” my money – instead of shopping for new clothing, jewelry, or makeup – I will always resort to scouring my local art stores for new supplies to play around with. So needless to say – I have quite a bit of supplies floating around my house over the years…

WHAT IF I COULD ONLY CHOOSE THREE…

Which then got me thinking – what if I condensed my supplies to just the staples. Water, paper, paints, and brushes were all musts – but what other 3 supplies would I include? After much thought – I finally came up with my answer.

MY THREE SUPPLIES…

  1. GOOD SET OF DRAWING PENCILS & ERASER: My first supply would be a combo – my favorite set of drawing pencils and erasers. Personally I love my 4H, 6H, and 9H graphite pencils from Kimberly. They aren’t great for shading – but awesome for line work – especially when desiring light lines. The next supply for this combo – would be my Generals Gum Eraser.
  2. COPIC WHITE INK: My second supply would be my favorite white ink. This ink is great for detail work or even correcting highlights that were lost during the painting process.
  3. MUSIC: My third supply would be MUSIC – and yeah I count this as a supply MUST. For me a good set of tunes blasting through my ear pods not only helps motivate me to paint but also inspires my creativity. I love listening to soundtracks from movies – and currently have been jamming to Pixar’s BRAVE soundtrack. I’ve always been a sucker for Celtic music 😉

WHAT SUPPLIES WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

Now that you know my answer – I then posed the question to you on Instagram and got some really cool responses! Here are a few that stood out!

LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS BELOW IF THERE ARE ANY OTHER SUPPLIES YOU WOULD ADD! I’D LOVE TO KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS!

I tend to hoard supplies too and not just Art Supplies I tend to collect craft supplies as well.
I must have 30 sheets of plastic canvas simply because I found them at a Thrift Store at a really great price same for all the Yarn I have. HOWEVER I have also purchased complete Art Kit’s with Watercolors, Colored Pencils, Oil Pastels also in the Kit’s were Pencils and Brushes, sharpeners and Erasers all unused. One I paid .85 cents for the other more like $3.00.
Other downfall is some outlet stores have Art Supplies Asile with 12 tube sets of watercolor for $3.99 and set’s of oil pastels 48 for $7.99 etc yeah at those prices I am now an Art Supplies Hoarder
lol
