Over the past couple of months I've been slowly trying to make my art room more of an inspirational space instead of a cluttered mess. I tend to create and work in our living room, lol, although I have a whole room dedicated to art space. I prefer to sketch, draw, paint, etc., in our living area where I can hang out with my handsome Husband. But the drawback to that is that our living space ends up housing a lot of my art clutter. :)
So I thought it was time to make the art room a little more inviting. I can always use it when Husband isn't home, and I can use it to display finished pieces to gain inspiration, and also to store my supplies in a more orderly way.
So I cleaned out all the storage cabinets and labeled everything so that I can locate supplies easier. I hung up most of my canvases using a display idea I got from my friend. And just lately, I found a display idea for loose artwork on a blog I was reading. Here's a picture.....I have done this with both windows in the art room, and I love the way it looks!
I had all these loose pieces in a portfolio stored away, but how much more fun it is to have them out where I can see them! They seem to brighten up the room and I've started hanging out in there more. I find myself wandering in there just to look around at everything and think about how I have improved and what I want to work on improving.
In other art news I am loving the ATCs For All site. I've mailed 2 ATCs for swaps this week, and I've joined another ATC swap for mixed media ATCs. I have some ideas for some ATCs, but I am engrossed with my M3 course and finishing my goddess. I've made some progress on her, but I don't want to post another picture of her until it's done. I hope to finish it this week, but I'm starting to think that I could tweak it for quite a while until it can be called finished. :)
