Pam's Cottage Studio Tour


Hi - welcome all to my very first studio tour.  Grab a cup of coffee and meet my fur ball assistant - Scamper.  She must lay on every piece of fabric and paper in my studio.  Well, it's her job.   My studio is 12 x 26 and has a sink which I love having when I'm painting.     I'm  a multi-media artist so I have areas for everything.  If I don't have room here I gradually move into other parts of the house.

Eat Dessert First!!!  Areas where I store paper

Love this table!  And more storage for paper.

Gallery for Paintings

Sewing area and fabric, also Cricut setup.  Also more
fabric in bottom of hutch.
Sink area - I put a cover over it and use as
another table when I'm papercrafting.

Books!!!-  I have way too many books!
Acrylic painting 16 x 20.  A little artwork scattered here and there.
Dog portraits on ornaments I am painting for upcoming craft shows
Cat ornaments
A Cat Named Thomas (acrylic and embroidery)

What am working on?  Mini Albums for upcoming craft shows

Another view of sewing area
Computer area

This is more shelves and of course more books!  I took boxes and covered with wallpaper.  The boxes on top
are lace and ribbon   You can never have too much lace and ribbon.  Also hanging on shelves are some tags from swap with Velma (hi - Velma)
Thanks for stopping by!!!  If you just click this  it will take you back to  Desert Cottage for more awesome studios.

    Your studio is charming and your art is fabulous. I love your animal ornaments.
    Thank you for sharing.

  26. Your area is so neat and nice. Your painting is very nice you must love animals.Laura

  27. Very neat and tidy space and you have a great layout with all the different work stations. I like your gallery wall and how you reused just regular boxes with covering them with wallpaper, clever and Im all for reusing old things for something new. The dog & cat portraits ornaments are fantastic, I bet they are a great sellers in crafts shows and I hope you get a good penny for them as they have a lot of detail work on them.

    Lovely space, thank you for showining it to us all : )

  31. Your creative studio is awesome! I love your ornaments that you've painted. I think I spotted my sweet dog on one of them!
