A Peek At My Inspiration Wall

Wednesday, February 9, 2011 · 4 Comments

Recently I’ve been tackling the big, brick wall above my desk… transforming it bit by bit into an inspiration wall. I have to say, this has been one super fun and CHEAP art project! At some point in the near future I will post photos of the completed inspiration wall but for now just wanted to share a taste.

I’ve been collecting all sorts of images – small pieces of art, cut-outs from fashion and design mags and even clippings from some of my art books. Yes, I know some people frown on this but the way I see it I’d rather have the art where I get to look at it on a regular basis!

In case you’re wondering what became of my beloved Singing Cat by Ashley G it landed in what seems to be the perfect spot. Don’t you love when that happens?

    I visited many blogs except the audio feature for audio songs current at this website is really excellent.
