By far the most frequently asked question about my new online class 30 Days in Your Journal is, "What supplies do I need?"
I haven't released a full supply list for a couple of reasons:
- One of the focuses of the class is on using what you already have. That's why every single lesson comes with a guide to possible supply substitutions.
- We are using an enormous range of products. I would hate to have you go out and buy a product, then see it demonstrated in class, and not even like the way it works! My intention is for you to see the product in action and then decide whether you want to buy it, or make a substitution.
- I think a big supply list is intimidating. I want this class to be as friendly and relaxed as humanly possible.
All of that said, here are the few supplies it would be hard to find substitutes for:
- Use StazOn instead of Archival Ink. You just need an ink that dries quickly and won't run when it comes in contact with water.
- Use Sakura Pigma Microns instead of Pitt Pens. Like the ink pad, you need a pen that dries quickly, writes on lots of surfaces and won't run when it comes in contact with water.
- Skip the heat tool and patiently wait for things to dry.
- Instead of tube watercolors and a watercolor palette, use a set of pan watercolors.
- Instead of tube watercolors and a watercolor palette, use a set of acrylic paints and a paper plate.
- In terms of the brushes and the gesso and the tape and the journal and the stamps, the brand doesn't matter, that's just what I use.
I hope that helps answer your questions!
P.S. Had a great time in Houston and San Antonio, but I've got a crazy week, so I'll share a bit about my trip next week.
