Silhouette Machines - I use these cutting machines to create the sticker sheets I sell in the shop.
I did a lot of research to find the perfect tripod for filming videos, and I’m so glad I chose this one. It’s lightweight, easy to set up quickly, and can adjust for overhead filming of a tabletop, too!
I use the royalty free music at Epidemic Sound for my videos.
Talens Art Creations Sketchbook - I use this for my art journal!
My favorite sketchbook - Moleskine Art
Brush Pens & Markers
Tombow Brush Pens - My favorite colorful markers (also use for highlighting in my planner)
Pentel Arts Pigment Ink Brush Pen - Black This pen is a new favorite. The brush is amazing!
Uni Posca Paint Markers - They come in a variety of sizes. I tend to use the Medium tip (1.8-2.5mm)
Canvas Paper - I love painting on this paper as an alternative to canvases!
