Pre-Launch Prompt #2 - Document Your Art Supplies

Pre-Launch Prompt #2 - Document Your Art Supplies

This week, we'd like for you to create at least one page in your journal documenting at least one genre of your art supplies. Perhaps you have never documented any of your supplies, and if not, now is a great time to start. If you have already done this, maybe for this prompt you pick one or more of a single color family to document (let's say ORANGE... find every kind of orange medium you own and document them).

Pick any medium--maybe you select watercolors, acrylic paints, Sharpie markers, Copic markers, India Inks, Alcohol Inks, colored pencils, watercolor pencils or a specific brand of pens.  Whatever you choose from your supply stash, document them in a way that is pleasing to you.  Maybe you pick them ALL!  There is no pre-set or determined way to do this and no right or wrong way.

Here's how we all responded to this week's challenge.  We hope that we inspire you to make something wonderful and useful!

Since I don't "blog" (maybe one day in the future), here's what I did for our prompt this week. I created a grid and then documented all my acrylic paints and listed the name of the color beside it.  You can create a grid using the "table" feature of your word processing program, then just print it out on cardstock or Bristol to get nice clean lines on the grid like I did, or of course you could hand sketch a grid and label as you desire.

This was a fun process and I think a good way to have a handy reference of the supplies and colors I have in my stash when working on my art projects.

Lynn Jackson -  Since I am new to the world of art journaling, my paint supplies are limited, but oh what fun this was!  You can do something as simple as I have done by just using your finger or a paint brush to make circles or blobs of your paint and documenting the name out beside the color. All these paints are by Apple Barrel and are readily available for a nominal cost at the big blue box store.

Easy peasy!


  1. I have been working on an inventory of my art supplies since May when I was home due to surgery. I will post on FB
