I love the things I consider to be the tools of my art. Paint, brushes, colored pencils, watercolors, inks, stamps, stencils, gel pens, markers…oh the joy of new toys…er, I mean tools. lol
One tool that I’ve found invaluable (thanks to the recommendation of Teesha Moore, the art journaling guru) is Sharpie Paint Markers. THEY ARE FABULOUS! I mean, seriously fabulous. If you art journal and you don’t have some of these babies, you have no idea what you’re missing out on.
The first ones I got were this set of five…just black, blue, yellow, red and white. I fell immediately in love with them. I just wasn’t so in love with the price…I’m too cheap of a chickie to enjoy paying $16.00+ for five markers.
Geez Louise, that makes them over $3.20 each!
But still, I love the way they work on anything (even shiny National Geographic magazine pics I use in my art journal…and nothing else seems to stick to those bad-boy slick magazine pics) so I just couldn’t think about not branching out and getting more, lots more-in every color, of these great markers/pens.
Now, I’m a researcher so I have been doing my homework so I could find all those other great colors and not have to pay out the butt for them. Teesha has some sets for sale on her website but she’s out of the colored ones and only has black and white right now. Besides, I just can’t bring myself to pay $20.00 for six of them…like I said, I’m cheap.
Anyway, my thrifty girl research has paid off…I have found the objects of my affection. Sharpie Paint Markers in a slew of great colors…all those pictured here AND a dark green, purple, magenta, silver and gold.
Oh my, that is a big Woo Hoo!
The really big Woo Hoo is that I found them for the low, low price (the words that make a cheapo chick like me just melt) of $2.08-2.59 each. Not only that but I got free shipping AND I just ordered them yesterday morning and they are already en route via UPS. Now, get this, they are due to be delivered TODAY! I think that calls for a big ol’ fat YEE HAW! lol
So, if any of you fellow art journalers out there love these markers as much as I do, or if you’re just wanting to get into art journaling and want to invest in the very best and most useful tools possible, not only are these invaluable but I’m willing to share my find of a great shopping spot.
