My studio is in our basement. I have a nice big area down here, but always *wish* there'd be room for me upstairs in a big room full of natural light! Ahhhh, but I manage and I'm blessed all the same.
Last night I realized my work area was embarrassingly filthy! Really. I put cleaning off so many times. I'd rather paint. But there's a point.
Here's a pic of some of the tools I use in my mixed media:
Below are my three favorite tools that I use very often. The one on the left is a punch. I take a hammer and pop it on my wood here and there to create little random holes and dings. I've had this tool for so many years! Then there's the exacto knife. I use that to dig out areas, rough areas up, and also to remove things I don't like. Then there's the clay tool. That's another *ding* tool.
I sharpened my watercolor pencils and loved the big pile it made. These might be cool to save to add in a mixed media piece in the future! I love finding stuff like this to my art. Once I picked up a bike tassel on the sidewalk cuz I loved the sparkle of it.
Have a great Sunday!
