My whole goal for moving to where I am now was to have my own little space to craft in. Well that space is now filled with boxes because we don't plan on staying longer than a year in our house so why turn a room into a studio when you'll have to turn around & pack it all back up? I hate it. But, since I've been inspired I really, really want to start making again.
The first experiment I want to try was inspired by this photo from the inside of the DIY book I got at the National Gallery:
It reminded me of paint chips at the hardware store or those pantone chips/booklets scattered through out design labs on campus. In the book, these are just spare bits of paper that are test swatches of colors that were mixed. I like how they resemble Pantone color swatches. For Christmas, I got about 5 flat panel canvases that I think I am going to use for these 'test swatches'. Sort of abstract color pallets if you will. I would love to have them displayed in a grouping on a wall.
On a side note, I find myself making things for the walls & never hanging them because my room mates don't particularly care for my boho decor style. Zach & I have had this conversation as well. He too is pretty 'traditional' when it comes to decor. I guess to each his own but I sorta want a house that I am also living in to reflect a bit of my personality, too. I am probably going to open up an art & home decor shop here in the future since I am going to try to make more & more & more things.
