Cheap Art Supplies for Art Journals

Standard

This year one of my goals is to create an art journal. You must check out the links below to these ladies sites, they are bound to inspire you as well. I do not consider myself an artist, yet am definitely artistic. That said, I also believe we are all capable of creating beautiful things. The cost of art supplies can be prohibitive, and thankfully Michael’s is coming to the rescue. Each of these items are part of their $4.99 collection. Perhaps if you are beginning from scratch, one thing at a time is within your budget. If not, use what you have!  I’ll post my creation for all to see if you’ll promise to reach outside of your comfort zone along with me. And, if you’d like to share, I’ll post your work as well! Sometimes getting started is the hardest part. Remember, if you are inspired by someone’s work, mimic it! Many great artistic souls learned their craft by copying the masters. If you have a great place YOU find encouragement for art, come post the link!
