Nature has always been my favorite canvas. I live in Southern California, and although there’s not an abundance of leaves to paint there are still options that don’t include palm fronds. If you live where there are no leaves, or they are currently covered in snow, keep in mind that you can use all of the following techniques on leaves that you cut out of paper!
I LOVE art supplies. I can’t get enough of them. As you can see from my Instagram page, the only thing I love more than art supplies is rainbows. When it comes to taking my art supplies on the go, it’s important for me to have a carrying case that’s not too big or too small, but something just right. Something Goldilocks would approve of. I really didn’t think such a case existed until I saw the OOLY Mighty Pouch. I can’t believe how much I can fit into this expandable case. I’m often taking supplies on the go for both myself and my 6-year-old so this pouch works great for both of us. You can even fit a mini iPad inside! While I love the bright colors that the Mighty Pouch comes in, I thought it would be fun to create a personalized pencil pouch and make it more my own. Below are a few ways to personalize your own Mighty Pouch!
I’ve always been a fan of art on unique canvases. I adore painting rocks, doodling on Starbucks cups, and drawing on leaves. Why just play on paper when you can explore a variety of surfaces? I especially love when I discover art supplies, like Magic Puffy Pens, that let me explore new surfaces.
