Dick Blick order!

Squeeee! I got paid for a custom order recently and i decided to splurge and get some supplies from the dick blick website! they were conveniently having 20% off and free shipping…


We’ve got a big tub of liquitex gel medium, some blick gel medium, purple archival ink, spectrafix fixative, another set of pitt pens (one for the art studio and one for my “traveling” art kit), a new brayer, some white paint and gel pens and large stack of mini canvases! (not pictured is a koi watercolor travel set which was immediately added to my “travel” art kit)

So much fun stuff – can’t wait to play!!

(Sure wish blick would get their affiliate stuff sorted out…)


Ink crazy

Included in my recent dickblick order was a set of Derwent Inktense blocks:


After playing with them for a bit I got the crazy idea of making actual inks out of them. So off I went, adding water to get the right consistency to use with my dip pens:


This was fun! I forgot how much I loved playing with pen and inks…


Long weekend – super excited!

Had a nice long four day weekend! Conveniently got my first order from dick blick yesterday – squeeee!!!

Got a couple items that I’ve wanted to try out for a while now plus the main set of things I wanted: a few of the letraset promarker sets



Thank you to Suzyblu for showing off how amazing these things are in her YouTube videos…I couldn’t resist them!

I’m off to play some more…
