Michaels Art Supplies Haul

Updated: Jul 11, 2019

Hi, everyone and welcome back to my blog. In this post, I will be sharing all of the art supplies I purchased this past week at Michaels and how I will be using them. The canvases were 70% off so this trip to Michaels was a must. I always like to use a coupon. So I also saved on some others things I got as well. Without further or do here's what I purchased.

1. The first thing I got was the Artist's Loft Gallery Wrapped Level 3 Canvases. I purchased five of these since they were on sale. These are usually my go-to canvases. I haven't found any in the store that are as great of quality as these. I've been working on some smaller pieces lately because my house is getting kind of crowded with all of the other art I have done already lol. So, I decided on purchasing one 20x20, two 11x14, and two 12x12 canvases. As of right now, I'm not really sure as to what I will paint on these but I'm thinking maybe something watercolor.

2. Second as I talked about this product in my last blog post. I purchased the Strathmore 400 Series Watercolor Paper Pad. I got this in the 11x15 size. Not sure what I will paint yet but I'm sure with the next thing I'm going to share with you that I purchased will help me figure it out.

3. The next thing I purchased was the Canson XL Mixed Media Pad. I decided to get the rough mixed media instead of the regular mixed media pad because I will probably be using a lot of watercolor in this and I want it to hold as much as possible. I'm going to use this to do some doodling and jot down any ideas that may come to me. I got this in 7x10. I figured this would be a great travel size if I need to take it on the go.

4. Last but not least I purchased was the Pentel Sunburst Metallic Pens. I got these in a set that came with one silver and one gold.This was my first time purchasing these and so far I really like them. They are smudge and waterproof. So I'm sure they will work well with watercolor and ink. I will use these in my watercolor paintings and also in my mixed media pad.

So, that's all that I purchased. I hope you enjoyed this post. Please subscribe to my mailing list at the top of the page if you want to be notified the next time I post on my blog,

Sending you all lots of love and positive energy,

Sierra Barnes
