Do you have a Travel Bag of Fabulousness?
A Satchel of Sanctuary?
A Bag of Bliss?
What else would you call your portable studio? But, I don't travel, you say. Neither do I very much, but sometimes I like to take my art outside on the patio. Sometimes, I don't have the strength to walk into my studio, but I still want to doodle, or do something creative. So, I put together my Travel Bag of Fabulousness. (The name is not copyrighted. You can use it too!)
My bag consists of this:
- Small backpack with enough pockets to keep things organized
- 2 pencil cases filled with small tubes of acrylic paint, watercolor pencils, coloring pencils, drawing pencils (2H, HB, 4B, and charcoal), pen nib and holder, oil pastels, q-tips, straight-edge, glue stick, cutterbug scissors, two paintbrushes (flat and round), pencil sharpener, eraser
- small spray bottle of water
- case of artist pens
- pan of cake watercolors
- small plastic palette
- small bottle of gesso
I'll share with you a couple of products that I learned about from Sarah Whitmire's 21 Secrets workshop called Jet-Set Journaling: a watercolor brush pen and peerless watercolor papers. They are already on my Christmas list!
So, whether you knit, scrapbook, art journal, sketch, or any other creative endeavor, how do you take it to the streets?
