"Waste not" in 2017 will mean "dig into the closet, find the art supplies that were bought ages ago but never used, and use them!"
"Want not" in 2017 will mean "do not run to the store (or the internet) to purchase every new art item that I learn about."
"Use it up, wear it out" in 2017 will mean "there's the art supplies - now make some art!"
"Make it do, or do without" in 2017 will mean "be creative with the art supplies that I have - explore their range of possibilities!"
Lots of layers of collage, acrylic paint, gesso, and Sakura Glaze pen in Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Sketchbook.
