I love back to school supply sales.
I love buying note books, markers, glue and gadgets for art making.
Here are some of the school supplies that I stock up on at this time of year and what I use them for:
- Composition notebooks – daily journalling
- Erasers of all sizes – carving into small relief blocks
- Page protectors – storing stencils and surface for drying stencils with wet glue
- Plastic binder folders – stencils to use for screen printing
- Pencil head erasers – stamping circle and soft erasing
- Copy paper – practice prints, newsprint pickups, and sketching
- Big glue sticks – collage and piecing together prints
- Crayola Markers – quick color sketches
- Sticky notes – tiny sketches, to do lists and labels for sorting prints
- Index cards – printing on, idea sorting, sketching
- Push pins – piercing sewing holes in handmade books, hanging work to be admired.
- Little scissors – cutting little things
- Bull Clips – hanging art work and inspiration, holding pages together while making books
- Pencil sharpeners – for nice sharp points
- Manilla file folders – making stencils, organizing stencils and prints.
If it is back to school sale time where you live, you might want to get some good deals on some “art” supplies.
