A few favorite tools

I’m teaching a journal class, something I’ve thought about on and off for years.

Why now? Maybe because the women in my Artist’s Way group made it so easy. Or maybe because I realized I’m no longer a beginner.

In fact you could say I’m an expert, having kept a journal for 40 years or so, and a visual journal for the last 10.

I’ve learned a lot along the way, and I’m learning even more from my class. One thing I learned right away is that new journalers want to know which tools to use for what.

If you know me, you know that I like almost any art/craft supply: pens, pencils, markers, stamps, stencils, paper, paint, fabric, yarn, clay, beads. But I love only a few.

These are the ones I keep coming back to and use all the time.

Hope this helps, because I’m determined to inspire you to express yourself—and have fun with it!
