Welcome Back

Like, I’m sure a lot of others, a holiday this year wasn’t an option. Mind you, given that when we go on holiday that means camping and given the weather, I’m not quite as sad as I was at first. To make up for the fact we will be having a stay cation, I decided to treat myself to some new art supplies and have my very own art retreat instead.

Staycation supplies

Staycation supplies

These were the new supplies (thank goodness for Ebay ;) ) and I dug out some stuff I hadn’t used for a while and some art books from the book shelf that had been neglected and I’m going to art out instead. We all do it don’t we, you splurge and buy supplies then don’t always find time to actually play with it.

Join me for a virtual Art Retreat

Are you stuck at home this year too? Dig out some supplies you have but haven’t used yet, and some of your favourites and let’s have a play. This doesn’t have to be about Art, you can use the concept of any kind of creative activity you love.

You will need

Free downloads of retreat ideas to spark your creative spirit. Print the pages below. (Details of how later in the article.) More downloads to come, later in the week.
