Supply List- The Holy Trinity

Please note you do not need to run out and buy all these new supplies (unless, of course, you were hoping for an excuse and then by all means), this supply list is for your reference and to make information a bit easier (clickable images). Quite often you can make do with what you have or swap out one brand for another although it is always fun to experiment and play with different materials. Often on our journey its easy to think that if you just had the right this or that, or new and magical thing, then your work will transform in some magical way. The most important thing is showing up to the practice of creating. The odd supply might be essential for one lesson here or there but if you have a general supply of basics you should be fine- improvise & experiment like an artist.

Substrates:

I mostly work in sketchbooks (like this one) or my handmade Sacred Arts Journal made in the 13 mOOns Sacred Arts Workshop. For some lessons you will need a sketch book (or paper to work on), others you may choose to work in your art journal as I do, or on a canvas or board to display your work- it is a personal preference.
I love Stillman & Birn sketchbooks for watercolour and ink work. They come in a variety of sizes, and paper finishes and they seem to lie flat, my two go tos are the Zeta & Beta range which are a beautiful heavy weight paper one in smooth and one with some texture. I use both this one & this one in the lessons.

Gelli Plate or make your own as I did (bonus video included).


Some books that will support this work (none are compulsory reading but if any are calling you enjoy- click to see more). There is a more comprehensive list on the Divine Feminine over HERE on the 13 mOOns list.

N.B.- although I have put Animal Speak on the list, I would suggest you always go to your own wisdom first and avoid googling the “meanings” of certain guides.

Optional Supplies:

My can't live without Masterson palette. Of course you don't "need" this palette but wow didn't it revolutionise my painting practice. I  hated wasting paint so would never put out enough or a child would demand attention and the paint would dry out, or the heat would get it. When I discovered this it made painting easier- I lay out a palette and it may last me a month!! I can paint for several hours with the moisture below keeping the paint fresh, or just for 5 mins without all the set up. As long as I remember to put the lid on when I get up it is perfect for me- no more paint wastage.
