Do any of you use Pinterest? I know it’s been around for years but I’ve only just discovered it, and it’s fun!
There’s so much on it – images of anything and everything you can think of. I’ve created a few boards for inspiration – pictures I like, basically; whether I’ll actually be inspired by any of them to do anything I don’t know, but they’re lovely to look at.
Here’s what’s inspiring me right now:
Embroidery mostly, but other textile arts too. The work other people are doing is amazing, plus historical embroideries and fabrics.
Other crafts – glass, ceramics, wood, jewellery. Beautiful things made by talented people.
There’s a very fine line between art and craft and it’s often hard to decide where it lies, but I’ve tried to choose fine art and illustration here.
In my day job I work for an organisation involved with architecture and the construction industry, which has got me interested in buildings.
Wouldn’t it be great to live in a home that looked like some of these?
A mixture of dramatic and scenic views, gardens and plants.
Colours, textures, bits and bobs that don’t seem to fit anywhere else.
And not forgetting:
My own embroidery
Some photos of my own work, which I’ll be adding to as I go along.
If you would like to follow any of my boards you can find them at pinterest.com/rutholeary16, or from the button at the bottom of the page. Let’s get pinning!
