Drumroll, please! The studio is finally done! Well, OK... it might not *ever* be really, really done, but it's ready for ART! I'll dispense with details of unpacking, other than to say that I couldn't have done it without a LOT of help from my niece Lauren... she (like me) loves organizing and sorting things and making them look nice, so we were a perfect team.... here's the results...
I'll start from the entrance and work around the room counterclockwise... then show some closer shots.
|triple desks... GALANT from IKEA with ALEX drawers underneath. It has been so humid here, all the windows are steamed up early in the morning.|
|straight ahead from the entrance, sliding doors to the back yard.|
|space under that window is being saved for my mom's sewing machine.|
|My wall of inspiration. All art made by me. As I make more things I'll change it up.|
|bookcases filled with stamps, journals, things to alter, fibers, books, etc.|
|And what I consider a British train platform style clock. Love that it says "Paddington Station" on it.|
|Paper, canvas, sketchpad, scrapbook storage|
|Long view of the desks from the far end... the first desk has all my painty, gelli pad supplies so I've got a stack of newsprint ready to go...|
|Corner wrap-around desk|
|Other side of the wrap-around. This is the journaling area, with all my ink sprays, journals, etc. Plus my vintage typewriter ready to go for journalling.|
|Closer shot of the wall of inspiration.|
|Close up on book cases - journals, books, fibers in the white boxes, embossing powders, perfect pearls etc. in the Tim Holtz tins on top shelf.|
|Close up on distress stain / paint storage. It's an old Coca-Cola crate - have had this for *years* and finally figured this out. Love it! Need another one for perfect pearl mists...|
|And another old Pepsi crate for all my Dylusions ink sprays.|
|We've been buying these tiny little jars of apple juice, shaped like an apple, and they're so cute I can't get rid of them. I'm thinking of filling them with different beads of other small embellishments.|
|aren't they adorable?|
|And back to the beginning... (note the boxes on the OTHER side of the door... we're still not quite 100% finished settling in, but we're almost there!)|
Hope you all have a great weekend. See you soon!
