creativeGIRL go-to kit

 As I mentioned in my book, creativeGIRL: Mixed Media Techniques for an Artful Life, there are a specific set of supplies and tools I always have handy. This creative supply kit includes the essentials for the projects in my book, my in-person workshops and online classes.

NorthLight books has put together an amazing little go-to kit that includes my book and some great supplies as an amazing price! Check it out here!

Here’s a list of the supplies I always have on hand.  I will update this with my faves as my style and content changes.  If you are joining me for an online or in-person class, this is a great place to start!

  • Grumbacher Pan Watercolor Set (Transparent, 24-colors) or if you want to take it up a notch, you can invest in Sennelier Half Pans.
  • Watercolor-only brushes in a variety of sizes (1/4″ to 1/2″ angle, oval, dagger and round)
  • Clear container of clean water I love half-size mason jars for traveling)
  • Paper towels
  • Mechanical pencils (no larger than 5mm)
  • table salt
  • white vinyl eraser
  • white paint markers
  • watercolor paper (start with Cold Press, no less than #140 weight)
  • artist tape
  • oversized clipboard and/lap-sized white board

  1. HI Danielle- I am registered for your upcoming workshop in Denver, but I never received an supplies list. Can you let me know what I should plan to have?

    1. Linda- So sorry for the delay in my reply. I believe Jeanne has sent it out at this point. Please let me know if you haven’t. -danielle

  2. Hi danielle l have just purchased your creative girl book and you have me back on the road to drawing again and enjoying it! I have learnt how to develop my own style just by looking at how you draw? Do you hold online workshops? Thank you Chrissie Lancaster
