As an aficionado of mixed media, I am always on the lookout for new art supplies to make my projects more interesting. And help me save time.
Each type of art supply has its own unique properties.
Here are the art supplies I used for my art journal page.
I used the tube paints to paint my girl's face with a brush and my fingers for the background work. The paint markers made it easier to draw in the details on the girl's face. It saves time because no cleanup required and the thin acrylic paints dry very quickly.I used an Inktense pencil for the shadows. It is ink in pencil form that "intensifies" when you add water. I love how just one pencil can create so much depth in a drawing.
Now you know why mixed media = many art supplies....*winks*
