Here is another deep dive into supplies I know, use, and LOVE! The one thing I love about art journaling is it can be done on the go. You can pack a small bag and take those items with you on vacation, a car ride, the doctor’s waiting room, the carpool line, and more!
Let’s unpack my pen/pencil bag….
My go-to markers are Sharpie’s. They are permanent and inexpensive which is important to me. I buy them by the dozen and have them in all my bags..
They are so handy to have on the go. I recommend having some pre-painted backgrounds so all you have to do is take your journal and pen along. Those two items will fit in your purse.
Trust me when I say this makes being in a waiting room so much better.
The other black pens I recommend are Sakura Black Micron Pens because they are:
- Archival pigmented ink
- Chemically stable, waterproof & fade resistant
- No smears, feathers, or bleed-through
When it comes to White Pens here are my top two picks (We will deep dive into liner work with paints/liner brush in a further blog post):
I love to use on black or dark backgrounds.
Again, in a future post we will deep dive into black and white acrylic paint liner work as that remains my favorite! Stay tuned as I will be unpacking my travel back to share what art supplies I bring along….
