Yes, it's true. I am a self admitted Art Supply Junkie. When I see art supplies my pulse quickens, my heart beat speeds up, and a smile lights up my face. I can spend hours poring over the many different colors, paints, brushes, mediums, mark making items, stamps, papers and more...
Call me crazy, but I think it is the vibrancy of the color that just speaks to my soul. Some people tend to fall into a pattern of using certain colors, but to me the spectrum of colors is like a playground. And I find myself wanting to play more and more often.
And I have to touch them. I want to feel the texture of the brushes in my hands. I need to feel the creamy consistency of the paint on the tips of my fingers. I want to roll the colored pencils from hand to hand and revel in the feel of a soft ribbon or textured paper.
Is it just me? Or is there a little art supply junkie in all of us?
