My BFF is the greatest because she always puts up with my trips to the art store. Since Blick went into the old Pearl art store building on Market St., I have a hard time not spending a big chunk of my paychecks on art supplies. I can always justify it, though. Because ART, right?
I actually walked away with a lot of stuff I did not plan on buying (but ended up needing…mostly).
The one indulgent piece I got was a color-by-numbers that is all pixel-format. Meaning if you looked at the blank page, all you’d see are square or triangles with numbers. The image doesn’t reveal itself until you start coloring it in.
I also stocked up on black paper because we have a lot of jelly-roll pens — and now NEON INK(!) that needs some dark paper to color on.
Although not from this trip to Blick, earlier in the week I got my Tombow order so I’ll just group this all together as my weekly art supply haul 🙂 Part two later this week: Product reviews!
