Welcome back for part two of my studio tour. If you missed part one, you can find it here.
We are continuing on from the desk along the same wall today starting with my art cart. I bought this a couple of years ago at IKEA and love it. I could actually use a couple more around the studio.
It has served many purposes over the years but right now it is set up for art and mixed media. The top shelf is filled with my favorite coloring tools, copic markers, distress pens, paint brushes and lettering pens.
The second shelf houses my favorite mixed media texture stamps, washi tape, mini clothes pins and glue sticks. The bottom tier holds canvases and wooden blocks.
Moving down the wall I have enlisted various boxes and baskets to hold my paper crafting paraphernalia.
The brown chalkboard boxes hold my glue guns, heat tools and modge podge. I have separated paper flowers, ribbon, glue dots, ric rac, elastic, and other what nots and store them in labeled photo boxes.
The pink wood drawers hold my stamp pads and lettering stamps and the rusty blue tool box (a favorite find at the Pasadena flea market a few years ago) is my teaching travel case.
A good deal of my fabric is stored in these cubes and separated mostly by color. The bottom canvas totes hold some of my many unfinished projects. I've tried to label them so when the mood or deadline strikes I sort of know where they are.
These drawers and slots are for paper. Most of it sorted by line or season but it's not perfect. My mini books of paper are stashed in the blue basket up top. The tall thin shelf on the end is full of buttons and other miscellaneous paper stuff.
My embroidery work is kept in this large basket. I love that I can just pick it up and carry it downstairs or even into the car to work on the go.
If you're still with me, there's more...(I know, I have a lot of stuff) be back soon.
