Hey everyone! I'm finally getting around to showing you all the art supplies that I ordered from Dick Blick about a month ago. Dick Blick has some really great prices, so I was able to get a bunch of stuff for way less than if I'd bought it at Hobby Lobby, Micheal's, or even Guiry's art supply store.
Quite a lot of stuff, huh? Let's take a look at the drawing pencils and blending stumps, first.
Since Winter break ended, I haven't been doing a lot of art. Not just because I've been busy with school (which I have, actually) but also because my sketchbook is full! I use my sketchbook not only for sketches, but for watercolors as well - like the following one.
Unfortunately, it's not the best for watercolors. It's nice sketch paper, but not nearly heavy enough to support a good watercolor picture. The pages get warped, the paint breeds through, and many nice watercolor techniques cannot be used because of how flimsy the paper is.
In 2016, many people are resolving to throw out their bad habits, and bring in new ones with the new year. I, however, never quite understood the whole "New Year Resolution" thing. Observing other people made it seem that resolutions never change anything. They would set sky-high, idealistic goals, and then find them overwhelming. When they couldn't complete everything, they'd give up entirely. I know that's not the case for everyone, but admit it - that happens a lot. :P
Christmas is nearly upon us, and it's at the peak of gift-buying season. I love getting people Christmas gifts, but being a student means that I don't have a ton of money to spend on them. DIY gifts are more personable, anyway. What's more awesome than a completely one-of-a-kind gift? These ideas would be loved by most teen and tween girls, and they won't cost a fortune!
