Studio Observations

May 20, 2013

Sev­er­al weeks ago while stay­ing at Ron­da’s and play­ing in her awe­some stu­dio, as I looked around I noticed lots of sim­i­lar­i­ties in the way we dec­o­rate and the prod­ucts we use to cre­ate. Even though our styles are quite dif­fer­ent we do have a love for sim­i­lar things. So while I was notic­ing all the sim­i­lar­i­ties I start­ed snap­ping pho­tos to show you how two total­ly dif­fer­ent artists (I’m a vin­tage neu­tral girl and she is a wild­ly col­or­ful sten­cil girl) can be such great friends.

Studio Comparing Buttons

Ron­da uses col­ored but­tons in her art and has them sort­ed and lined up in rain­bow order neat­ly on a shelf were as I use most­ly clear or neu­tral col­ored but­tons and have jars placed here and there in my stu­dio.

Studio Comparing Pins

Ron­da has some of her favorite Trin­ket Pins placed a pin cush­ion made from a vin­tage cup and saucer. I have my favorite Trin­ket Pins placed in a pin cush­ion made from a vin­tage planter.

Studio Comparing Decor

Ron­da has vin­tage and non-vin­tage trea­sures ran­dom­ly placed on shelves. I have vin­tage and non-vin­tage items scat­tered all around my stu­dio.

Studio Comparing Aprons

Ron­da hangs her aprons on the wall, mine hangs on a chair. Ron­da wears a full apron. I wear a half apron. She is messy. I am not.

Studio Comparing Typewriters

We both have an Under­wood type­writer. Mine is black and Ron­da’s is red. I laughed when I saw her type­writer as it just con­firmed even more how she is all col­or and I’m all neu­tral. We stay true to our style even with type­writ­ers.

Studio Comparing Glitter

We both use glass glit­ter and have them stored in salt and pep­per shak­ers. You can see who uses glass glit­ter the most.

Studio Comparing Supplies

We both use Stick­les, Alco­hol Inks and Adiron­dack Paint Dab­bers although she has hers neat­ly lined up on shelves and I have mine tossed in draw­ers. I found this inter­est­ing since she is such a messy artist (has mists fly­ing all over) and I’m a very clean artist. We cer­tain­ly swapped the neat and tidy when it came to stor­age.

Studio Comparing Trims

We both keep our trims on a shelf. I usu­al­ly go for vin­tage cream col­ored trim. Ron­da goes for white so she can cre­ate the col­or trim she wants with mists, paints and inks.

Ronda's Window

Ron­da’s win­dows have shades and can be opened to let the cool Col­orado air inside.

My window

My win­dow has lace cur­tains and win­dows that nev­er open because all that would enter is hot Texas air and bugs.  Oh how I envy her liv­ing in Col­orado.
