Updated Art Travel Kit

Hi Y'all, 

 I'm a homebody married to a travel buff who I appreciate for expanding my horizons. and taking me on adventures.    Our next month's trip Lottie is coming camping with us, and I'm hoping she loves it as much as we do. We usually eat breakfast, go for a hike, and then chill by reading a book, playing a game, or creating in my case.  Whenever I leave home, I can't take all of my art toys, but I bring my most versatile ones.  Let me show you my creative kit.

Joe bought a cool canvas box for portable pencils, markers and other tools. It is for sure coming with me.  I don't know where he found this.

Inside you can find a couple of Stabilo All pencil, #2 pencil, tiny water bottle, glue stick,  an inexpensive plastic pencil sharpener that a child might use in school, black gel pen, and a white Posca marker.  And of course small scissors.

I carry a second canvas bag for my watercolors or other water soluable medium.  These Jane Davenport watercolor tins are perfect for travel.  Some collage bits can be useful as well.  The canvas bag came from the now closed Tuesday Morning.  Spellbinders carries Jane Davenport supplies which are always beautiful and whimsical.

Travel Journal

I buy cute notebook from a stationer's shop.  My favorite one is in Austin, TX USA, and is called Paper Place.  If you are in the area, it's worth looking into. They also have a website you can look at here:  Paper Place.

As you can see in the above photo, I journal and create to help keep those travel memories alive.  Inside
I might glue a ticket or a post card.  On holiday I don't make myself create every day.  But it is there availabe to me, and I find myself picking it up often.
