Inspiration Boards

So many ways to gather your memories
of the
PAST...

display projects
in the
PRESENT...

and most importantly
collect ideas
for the
FUTURE...

Hoping you are always filled with inspiration...

the display boards are so nice- would be nice to have 3 and see it all at once- past, present and future.

I love the display boards. I know what you mean about secrets, I usually can't keep one either, so this is hard to do, but maybe I'll reveal another clue tomorrow...

i have been to homes that have sorts of boards or collages on the walls like this and i always found them interesting to look through. I never could get myself to have one because I would alwasy "straighten and clean it up" before it could get to look that cool. . .

I love inspiration boards, the problem is I have so many things that inspire me I would need an entire wall. Karen, you have one my creative giveaway. Congrats!!! Please email me with your address.

I wouldn't feel settled without an inspiration board of some sort on the wall. I do have to keep mine under control though as they tend to spread across the wall. I transfer all of the old themes to a special folder now so that I can start again with fresh colours and ideas.

Hi

I loved this post! I have some 5 boards in my studio, and to be honest I never seen them that way, I always regarded them as a place to put all the stuff I HAVE TO LOOK AT OR ELSE I WILL FORGET SOMETHING IMPORTANT...

OK I am re-arranging them to get inspired, and somehow the atmosphere feels better.

Great post, thanks for the tip !

I love inspiration boards. My sister had one that was an entire wall of corkboard going up about a sotry and a half. I thought it was so cool - old birthday cards and photos... I've always thought of them as wall collages.
