organising your art space
Having an organised art space (whether you just have a corner in the living room or a big studio) is a really important part of being creative and making art with joy. These are my 5 golden rules for my art space which in turn help me be more creative.

    Tidy Your Space

    Clutter kills creativity. OK maybe not, but a clutter of art supplies when I start makes me feel overwhelmed with too many choices. A clean desk means I can start with a sense of calm and go from there.

    Workspace Aplenty

    I’m sure lots of you can relate to having only a small space to work in. It’s important to have more surface than just what you need for your journal or substrate. That way you can have the materials you’re working with around you. Set up a foldable table if possible.

    Get Organized

    Everything should have its own place. It will help you find things quickly and also makes tidying up much easier.

    Quick Access

    When it’s hidden away, I don’t use it and forget I have it. All my favourite art supplies are within arms reach and visible. That way I can quickly grab what I need without having to get up. It really helps me stay in the creative flow.

    Get Rid Of It!

    If you don’t use it, lose it! It clutters up your art space and makes you feel like you ‘should’ use it. If you don’t use or enjoy certain supplies, get rid of them (Freecycle, charity shop, arty friends) and make space for things you DO like.
