my little dutch sweetie treated me to a weekend getaway to a beautiful resort about an hour north of where we live. since we would be gone for just a couple of days, i definitely wanted to pack light. throwing the clothes, make-up and various hair paraphernalia into a suitcase was the easy part......but when it came to packing my "art bag", i ran into a bit of a challenge. how do i "pack light" when it comes to art?! how in the world do i narrow down all of my art-loves?! so i decided i would take only my journal, and a small case to hold some supplies. now.....what to fill the small plastic case with......
i thought about taking my watercolor pencils, but they're all my favorites......it would be hard to leave some of them behind, and that little travel case won't hold them all.
and then my pen collection came to mind.......it looks like there's too many of these to fit into that tiny travel case, too!
finally, i decided that my pencils would be the perfect thing to play with......and my travel case is the perfect size to hold several pencils, an eraser, a couple of smudging stumps, and a sharpener!
and at the end of the day, i decided it really doesn't matter what supplies you have......as long as you're inspired (and maybe sitting poolside!), you can always make it work!!
this journal page was finished using a 2B pencil, a 6B pencil, and an eraser.
