If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. There is a flickr group for sharing right here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post. Thanks!
I'm a great believer that having the right supplies makes any artistic endeavor easier. That said, the right supplies don't have to cost a lot of money. They are often things that you can make yourself or already have sitting around. Today I want to talk to you about paper.
My paper stash is enormous, but I use it almost every time I sit down to art journal. As you know, I'm a huge fan of making art journaling easy and quick. Collage is the quickest and easiest way I know to get color and pattern onto my pages. Here's a look at the kinds of papers I like to keep around:
I don't think I've been shy about my addiction to deli paper. It collages beautifully and is very inexpensive. I have a huge bag full of all kinds of printed and painted deli paper!
Finally, I'm clearly on my way to being featured on the TV show "Hoarders" because I keep all my itty bitty scraps "just in case." I really do use them, but I should probably also throw some of them away....
How about you? Do you keep a hearty paper stash on hand to use in your art journal?
Here is this week's linky list:
Thanks for stopping by!
