10 Versatile Art & Craft Supplies for All Skill Levels
For March Meet the Maker day 4, “on your desk”, I’m sharing my favorite craft supplies that are usually on my desk or near by.
First, let’s talk illustration & digital art...
Mechanical pencils for sketching. Convenient, and the erasers work well.
1
For detailed lettering Microns are my fave. I have tons of sizes & colors, but most often use black in size 05, 03, and 005.
2
For digital art & lettering I use my iPad, Apple Pencil, and the Procreate app.

Next are the supplies I grab when I want to craft, but I’m not sure what I want to make...
Cardboard is my secret fave supply. It’s free and you can make almost anything with it like wall art, pins, sculptures, and looms for weaving.
4
My X-acto knife w/ #11 blades is just one of those tools I can’t live without.
5
Fiskars scissors work great on everything. I have several pairs so I don’t mix between fabric & paper. The black blades are non stick!
6
Next is an inexpensive mini hot glue gun. I’ll use hot glue on anything!
7
Acrylic craft paints are inexpensive and super convenient. Paint on wood, cardboard, canvas and more. I especially love DecoArt Metallics.
8
Felt is one of those supplies I grab if I don’t know what to make. It can turn into patches, accessories, cat toys... so many possibilities!
9
And finally, DMC 6 strand floss. Perfect for embroidery, friendship bracelets, and tassels.
