I forgot to mention the 2 new journaling mediums I have been loving lately. The first one is a set of colored pencils by Derwent called coloursoft and I really love how smooth they are. My daughter Tiff, used them recently and fell in love with them too. see them here: Derwent Coloursoft Pencils - BLICK art materials These pencils are really coming in handy in my newest journal I am working in (where I didn't pre-paint the pages). I haven't shown any pages from that journal yet...I will soon. The 2nd product is called Panpastels PanPastel Artists’ Painting Pastels - BLICK art materials. Some folks at our PLAY retreat last january were getting excited about them so when I treated myself to my one new thing after Artfest (a ritual I've had), I went to Daniel Smith and bought a bunch. However, I bought mostly light colors, not knowing what I'd be doing with them. I found that I love the dark colors for creating shadows on everything. The colors I use the most are black, a dark brown, a deep red and a dark blue. They are really cool and do not need to be sealed. They go fabulously onto my fabriano paper but also will tint many different types of collage, color copies, and even most magazine pages. Between these two mediums I think my pages have more depth to them now. Anyway...something to put on your christmas list!
