A Page From My Life - Studio 613

Here is another peek into my art journal. You can read about my first page here. I wanted to see how fast I could come up with something by quickly opening my paper drawer, grabbing what caught my eye and taking it from there.

The gray polka dot paper was what popped out. I then began opening a drawer, file or cubby and randomly pulled items out. I didn't allow myself to think about it--would this work or not? Now I had a little pile of goodies to play with.

This journal entry talks about my 'Studio 613' which is what I call my crafting space. 6-13 is the month and day of my birthday. Oddly, and without thinking about it, I see 6:13 on the clock in the evenings two or three times a week. So I decided to call my craft space 'Studio 613'. Does that happen to you? And before you think I've gone off my rocker, I'm not into 'signs' or omens and such. This is just a quirky thing that happens periodically. I'll stick with the Word for my signs!

About the former gallery as mentioned in my journal entry: When Sunny's mom bought her little house she thought she would get too claustrophobic, so she had her garage turned into a family room. She had all of her photos hung on every wall and called it her 'gallery'. She ended up hardly using the room, finding her new home to be a comfort and not claustrophobic like she thought it would be. We ended up using the space as a workout room. After she passed away, I claimed a section of it for my own.

Items used:

Scrapbook paper
Old 'large print' rotary telephone dialer
Floral vellum from a vintage greeting card
Cartoon from an old science book
Inside cover of an old child's reader
Miniature tea-dyed tags
Bingo buttons

Thanks for once again getting into my head!

It's All Studio 613 Good!



  1. Very cool, Brenda! Love this random art idea!

  2. Interesting piece of art! Thanks for sharing.

  3. How fun to have named your studio! I alternately call my space the sewing room or craft room, depending on what I am doing at the time.

    A former pastor had a thing like that with the time 10:10 - no meaning to it, but it just seemed to come up frequently.

  4. I think your studio name is great and not at all strange. I love how you put this page together. I could learn a thing or two about making something without planning it out so much.


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
