Art Journal Every Day: Drying Rack to the Rescue!

from the Balzer Designs Blog: Art Journal Every Day #artjournalIf you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here.  All of the previous posts can be found archived here.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.  If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post.  Thanks!

Today's Art Journal Every Day post is all about an awesome drying rack solution that I stole from Andrea, the owner of A Work of Heart in San Jose.  If you're at all like me, most art journaling sessions end up taking place in a smaller and smaller amount of space because you're using the rest of your desk space for drying things.  Well, that no longer has to be true!  If you've got clothespins and a drying rack, you're in luck!

There's lots of room for hanging a ton of gelli prints or other painted papers you need to dry.

Or how about wet stencils?  You can hang them...


...or simply rest them on the rack!


I'm thrilled and delighted with my new drying space -- which quickly and easily folds up when I don't need it.  Plus, with my desk freed up, I've got loads of space for working!  My papers aren't all stuck together and I can actually find things!  It's amazing!

What do you use to contain all your wet stuff when you art journal?
