Favorite Tool Tuesday

Hi Art Groupies!  Today is the beginning of a monthly post we're calling Favorite Tool Tuesday (or Wednesday or whatever day it happens to be).

What are your favorite art tools?  One of ours is a cool white paint stick called "Meanstreak" by Sharpie.  It's waterproof, dries fast, and is a great alternative to using white paint.  It almost feels like an oil stick.

Here are some examples of what I've used it on:
I used it on the bigger areas--the small white detail is a gel pen.
I like to use it in journaling!
Here is a bigger view...

What are your favorite art tools?  Have you used this one in any of your art?  We will be choosing one random art groupie to win a Sharpie Meanstreak!  Leave us a comment!

Happy day to you!
