I am pretty excited about my new art journal kits. This is the gift that I would love to receive!
I have used a small vintage suitcase as a little travel studio, and I have chosen the box for this kit with that in mind. It has a handy handle to carry, extra room inside to add your own favorite goodies, and it is just right to sit on your lap as a little table.
Inside the Art Journal Kit I have gathered all my favorite essentials. Inside the lid is a list of contents, along with a short description of what to do with them!
Of course you have to have a journal, and this little mixed media journal is just the ticket for on the go journaling.
I have also gathered some of my favorite pens to use with my own journal. These pens are some of the few that write well over a painted page:
The Signo Uniball 207 BOLD
The Signo Uniball in white
I have also been using a china marker a lot lately, so I stuck in one of those as well>
And then, washi tape and a glue stick for sticking things in….
Of course we need some color, so I chose a large watercolor set…. 36 colors!
I also added a cute little mini mister bottle that can be used to spray water, or to mix some watercolor in for spray color, which can be used delightfully with the doilies, or stencils, or punchinella, or plastic canvas, included in the special effects bag…also in this kit.
Here are some examples of the special effects you can achieve with these!
Here is another technique…paint dabbed through the punchinella with the enclosed cosmetic sponge.
Other little packages I made for this kit include a pretty papers pack (contents will vary slightly):
And a tabs, tickets, and tags pack (contents will vary slightly on these too!) for making fun tabs in your journal:
And for those of you a little insecure about your lettering I threw in a alphabet stencil:
And last, but not least is a handy little sheet full of journaling prompts!
