Art Attack (aka mini art haul)

Monday, 31 March 2014

So recently I popped into Wilkinsons to get photo frames for my comic con photos and I came across the little art section and fell in love with the mini easel's and canvases. I just had to get them. But of course I had to buy paint , then new brushes and then a paint holder. I already had bought the pens a few days before hand to go with my other pens I bought for my wreck this journal and they are just the best pens ever and were on sale too! The drawing out pencil & pencil protective caps was courtesy of Greyray Stationary and I will blog abit about that later. I can't remember exactly the prices of everything but the paints were under £5, Brushes were under £2, the easels and canvases were under £2 each and my paint holder was just pennys. I'm sure you will be able to find them in your local Wilkinsons too.

I've always loved art. Over the years, I've lost my touch. I used to be such a good drawer and painter in high school. At one point I would have loved to go to art school but eventually that flame went out and the dream dwindled into just a hobby that got forgotten. My high school art books stuffed away into boxes, never to be seen again but my wreck this journal and my love of tiny things made a spark in the dark. And I have the artist blood flowing through me.
I've decided to paint three canvases (I need to buy more) to my dear friends Claire, Elle and Michelle. I can't wait to see how they turn out. I might just do mini canvas paintings for the rest of my life. They are so cute and my photo makes me feel like alice in wonderland with really big paint pots and brushes. :D

Are you the arty farty type? Do you love to paint or draw? Let me know in the comments below!

To go and buy mini easels go to Wilkos :D
