Pandora’s Box? – a journaling kit or tote full of favorite tools and supplies to keep on hand for journaling without having to scratch around looking for stuff. For once I was onto it, and already had a kit that sits on my desk 24/7. (Okay, so why has it taken me till the 1st March to post about it? Heaven only knows!)
The kit – which is more a semi-contained pile of stuff – consists of:
Navy, pumpkin and gold ink pads
Brick and purple Walnut Ink
Gesso and gel medium
A small range of pencils – pastel, graphitint, charcoal, water soluble
Black, purple and bright yellow ink
Golden fluid acrylics – raw sienna, med yellow, cerulean blue, burnt orange, black and manila cream
A roll of paper towels
A large bottle of Diamond Glaze adhesive
A few spools of cotton
Bernina Aurora sewing machine
Red, navy, burgundy, yellow and light blue oil pastels
Roll of masking tape
And that’s it – same stuff, all the time. I find it works for me; there is some colour consistency across mediums, lots of options for texture and depth, plenty of mess, and the speed of items I am familiar with. Perfect…
Cath – you crack me up! “semi-contained pile of stuff”, that’s great! More like Pandora’s Corner. Having all your stuff together to enable you to make pages following a impulse or just as exercise. I’m with you – keep the palette consistant and there’s less to think about, it all works. Thanks for playing.
wonderful! I am just getting in to using my gesso…haven’t used it in years. It looks like you are ready for creativity!
Love the colour consisitency across mediums, great idea of keeping it simple. Ux
Color consistency… there’s a great thought! Since I’m new to this I think I need to figure out what my fav palette’s are first. Guess I’ll be overwhelmed with color choice at the moment, lol!
This sounds like so much fun! Wish I could play, but hafta work.
Cath….everything in your kit is fabulous! I need to look for some of that brick and purple walnut ink. they sound great.
p.s. thanks for stopping by my blog to leave a comment on my journal kit :o)
