Mary Beth Shaw's Favorite Things

Hi, everyone! Mary Beth here!
I'm often asked during my Facebook livestreams about art supplies I'm using in my videos.
I keep a list of all my favorite art supplies here.
And today I'm sharing five of my favorites!

This is my favorite journal to work in! The paper is durable for wet media and my drips!
The binding is strong and holds the pages together wonderfully.
This is the journal I use in my Art Journal Cover tutorial.

This is my go-to glue stick for all of my art journaling! I buy them by the 24-pack!
I like that it goes on blue and dries clear so I can see where I applied it.
And this glue stick is strong and acid free! It's the best!

Daniel Smith Gold Gesso
One of the questions I'm most often asked during my livestreams, is where do I get my gold gesso.
It's Daniel Smith Iridescent Gold Acrylic Gesso, and I buy it in the large 16-ounce containers.
I use it in so very many of my livestreams! Magic Gesso, I kid you not.
It will help you achieve a beautiful glow in your art journals and paintings.
You can see this gesso in action in this art journaling video and my wrapping paper video tutorial.

Pixie Spray
This is the ONLY product I will spray on the back of a stencil.
It doesn't gunk up the back of my stencils or leave a sticky residue behind on my substrates.
It's strong enough to hold my stencils in place, but will not tear my paper when removing.
I especially like using this when I add watercolor paints to my work.
See how it works with watercolors in this video and this video.

Love, love, love my Color Shaper!
I use this to prep my art journal pages for mixed media by applying a skim coat of gesso to the pages.
And it is so easy to clean...even after paint has dried on it because it's silicone! Genius!

Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today!
I hope you love my favorite things as much as I do!
