Ever been to the store and picked-up an art supply only to come home to find that you already had the color? I have done this too many times to count. It’s time to take inventory of what you have! Here are color charts of many of the products that I use (don’t judge!). Once you take inventory, snap a photo with your phone and the next time you shop, your inventory will be at your fingertips! Note – wherever possible, I went directly to the supplier for the chart. In some cases I linked to charts on Pinterest.

- Don’t feel overwhelmed by this project. Each time you take out a supply, do the inventory just for that one product.
- Laminate the color charts and store with the product or in a binder. Update new colors after shopping with a Sharpie!
- Keep your charts handy when shopping online. These small purchases can get you to the free shopping limit!
What charts would you like to see added? Send me the link and I will add it. Stay tuned for an article on resource guides – which glue to use and when, what colors work together, difference in types of gel mediums, what paint brush should be used…
Please feel free to comment, like, share and follow me. Cheers!

Pat, this is just brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing all your hard work. Now if I could just find a good way to organize all the Chiyogami I use in my classes . . . Warmly, Nancy Akerly

Thanks for your kind words!
I store all my handmade paper in Itoya Art Profolios. I also use file folders to store all my skinned napkins marked by color/pattern and store them in an upright tote.
I’ll have to stop by your store next time I am in Door County.
Thank you for sharing this. It is going to help me so much. Especially when I am on a tight budget.
Glad you like the information. Please make sure to share the post.
