For painting, I think acrylics are good to start with. The brushes are easy to clean, they generally don't have an odor, and the fluid acrylics are relatively cheap. I personally find watercolors harder to control, but others may find them easier to work with.

I wanted to change from oils to acrylics and started out with dollar tree paints. I was given a set of water color paints and have been using them. I like the results and am having fun with it, To me it is all about the calming effect of painting or sewing.

I really never thought of that. Maybe I'll make a post for Freecycle to see if I can come up with some supplies when I'm able to drive to pick them up. Thanks.

Oh, Sandy, of course it is meant to be! Your second phrase says it all ,"I would love to learn to paint..." Decide what kind of painting you would like to do and then look up the videos on YouTube. It's amazing how much free instruction you can find. A lot of times you can find paints and other art supplies at local thrift stores.

These look great. I would love to learn to paint, but can't afford the classes in a studio. I had signed up for a free beginner class at the library ut then ended up in the hospital & couldn't go. Maybe it's just not meant to be?

Have you ever heard of Reverse Collage? I had not, but I came across this video yesterday. It is rather long (31 minutes plus), and the artist has a different delivery than most, but I really like the technique and the beautiful colors that she has created on the pages.

I have saved all my Birds & Blooms magazines from my subscription that I started a few years ago, so I think I'll try this soon.

I subscribe to the Cloth Paper Scissors newsletter, and this week they included a link to download some crafty gift tags to send along with your handmade gifts. They are free, but I don't know how long this site will be active.
