My new inspiration & Pinterest

20.4.11

I’ve been looking around for some new inspiration to paint. I tend to gravitate towards bright bold floral patterns for painting inspiration . They’re definitely my sweet spot and usually what inspires me to pick up a paintbrush.

While looking for some inspiration I was browsing pinterest which I discovered recently. If you haven’t gotten a chance to check it out and have a couple spare hours to waste I highly recommend you go on over and take a look, it’s a virtual pinboard, which is awesome all by itself, it’s visually beautiful and the result is professionally looking mood boards that go together in a snap, but what really makes it special is that you is “following” and browsing other collections. It seriously fantastic if you’re looking to get inspired.

Pinterest calls itself “a virtual pinboard — a place where you can create collections of things you love and “follow” collections created by people with great taste” Right now it’s in the BETA stages and by invitation only but if you go to apartmenttherapy’s review and look in the comments section there’s an awesome link that will get you started right away.

So, back to my inspiration for today, I came across these pillows from Crate and Barrel‘s Summerlin line on pinterst.

The colors palette in this is pillow are bright and fun for summer. Right now I’m dreaming up a plan to transfer some of this inspiration into some DIY friendly artwork. Luckily the people at PLAID took half the work out of it and came up with a color palette using “Apple Barrel acrylic colors.

(clockwise from upper left): Apricot, Kiwi, Plum Kiss, Country Gray, Black”.

Next stop, off to the store to buy some paint in the color palette above and make some cool summer art. Of course once I’m finished I’ll post the complete tutorial on the completed project. So check back soon!
