I am packing my art supplies getting ready to hit the road! I will be in San Diego next Saturday teaching a mixed media portrait workshop at Lisa Bebi’s gallery. Since traveling with art supplies can be a tad tricky, I decided to take an old suitcase and dedicate it towards this purpose.
This hard sided roll-aboard relic was one of hubby’s old go-to-work pieces. It has seen better days for sure, so painting it up was a not an issue. I used three colors of spray paint intended for use on plastic. It worked like a dream. Add in some gesso, Sharpie Markers, and Staz On ink and my art supplies will arrive in style!
I’m making a stop at Stampington to meet with the editors. This will be one of the highlights of my trip. After only email communications and the occasional phone conversation, I am excited to finally meet them in person. I might even see if they want to doodle a bit on my suitcase Art Journaling style.
One thing is certain, I won’t have any trouble picking out my suitcase on the luggage carousel:-)
I filled the inside with plastic containers so if something does spring a leak it won’t hurt too much.
I’ve already learned NOT to pack art supplies with your clothes…
Take your ART to NEW places!
Share it with those around you~
Make new friends:-)
Reconnect with old ones:-D
Live Art at the Speed of Life!
