Better With Art

Unwind with mark-making with this inexpensive and easy tool

You can’t get much cheaper or simpler than a toilet paper tube!

Who knew they could be used so many different ways in art?!? I recently explored some ways for #My100CollagePapers and loved this one so much, and found it so therapeutic, I had to share it here.

Welcome to Better With Art! I’m Melinda and I’m here to encourage you to reclaim your creativity and practice creative self-care with weekly small-art prompts that can be done in an art journal or on paper if you don’t have one.

Click here for my top value-for-the-money recommendation if you’d like an art journal to get started with my simple form of art journaling. I use it in my prompt videos, and for the art journaling groups at the library where I work. I LOVE the paper, and it works well with the dry, wet, and layered applications I use it for. If searching for something different remember the paper needs to be heavyweight and preferably hot-press because although I love the texture cold p’s really hard on markers and pens. This one is 140lb/300gsm.
