Supplies and Getting Started


    Please use whatever you have on hand! Though, if you’d like to know what I use — here’s a list:

    • Altered book as art journal
    • My favorite acrylic paints ever: Politecs
    • Oil Pastels — I dig the ones made by Faber-Castell
    • Art Graf water-soluble graphite stick
    • Faber-Castell water soluble graphite pencils
    • Blue painters tape
    Getting Started with Intuitive Painting

    Think of your art journal as a trusted, wise friend — one that’s awesome at keeping secrets, will never judge you, and thinks everything you do/feel/say is the absolute cat’s meow. That’s what Painting As Affirmation is all about. We’re going to show up to the page and let whatever wants to come out to simply flow, twist, pound, smear, and tornado its way through our hearts and onto the page. Every part of ourselves is welcomed in this safe sanctuary we call an art journal. So lets get messy!
