Imagine. Create. Enjoy.
Hello my lovely lovelies!
It's summer! I mean it's really summer, here in Phoenix we have been at close to record highs for over a week! When I got up this at 5 a.m.p to take my pup to the park it was already 80 degrees!
That is why I am happy to say I am going north! I go to MN and WI every year so I can attend a few family reunions, celebrate my daddy's birthday and enjoy time with my family. This year I am going for a month! Since I am only bringing carry-on luggage on the plane I have to pack light.
I bring one small carry-on suitcase for my clothes and toiletries and a second larger laptop bag for my recreational items which include ART supplies!
The first items to go in my bag are my substrates; I always pack a larger strathmore watercolor paper, because I like to be able to give art as gifts while I am home visiting. This year I have decided to bring mineral paper as well. Third, is an art journal - this year my journal is the Large Jane Davenport journal with hot press watercolor paper. I then place my 2 watercolor palettes (one for me my koi travel kit and one to share my grumbacher) in with the paper.
In an over sized pencil pouch I put my sketching pencils, a waterbrush, a #10 round brush, white gel pens, a black pen, an assortment of prismacolor pencils and last but not least, all of my Artistcellar pocket stencils.
Using the oversized laptop bag allows me to carry everything I need and still have room to add a book to read and have space in case I find more supplies I need to bring home with me!
Make sure you check for my next blog post to see what I create using the minimal supplies I am bringing with me! See you in 2 weeks!
Big hugs and mushes to you! Xoxoxo
