(This post is part of my Focus Your Craft & Soul Blog Event – see the list of all the posts HERE!)
For the last post of today I have another way to gather inspiration (like my Pot Of Inspiration last night). This one is making an inspiration wall:
This was so much fun – and it brightens up my craft space as well as giving me a place to visit for inspiration!
I didn’t think I’d have anywhere I could make an inspiration wall in my craft space. I say ‘my craft space’ but it’s actually our dining room really… it’s just a dining room full of crafty stuff! Two walls are taken up by big patio doors and windows, which is why I love to craft in there – it’s so light:
Another wall is mostly taken up by my Expedit unit and glitter shelves:
Then I realised I could use the back of a door to add my inspiration pieces to! I chose to use this door, as it opens inwards, so when the door is open it will be hidden:
I gathered a variety of bits of inspiration, including THIS PRINT, some postcards, a wool-wrap piece I made at college, a piece of 12×12 paper, some empty frames, washi tape and ribbon, a photo, some Amy Tangerine Creative Handbook pages, and the latest Mollie Makes magazine for the ‘Geo Origami’ page to make some 3D triangles:
Plus some trusty Blu Tack to stick some items up with!
Then I just kept adding to the door until I was happy. You can watch me putting it together in this video if you like (there’s no voiceover, just music):
You can also watch it on YouTube HERE.
I love how the very different pieces all came together!
One thing to point out is that I stuck a little piece of Blu Tack at the bottom of each frame to hole it to the door – when it was just hanging with ribbon it would have swung about all over the place, so the Blu Tack keeps it where it should be!
Make some 3D origami triangles or other shape
Stick things to your next project using washi tape to hold it on
Hang a frame with ribbon – in your home or on a scrapbook page
Have you got somewhere that you could make an inspiration wall in your house?
Thanks for joining me today, I’ll see you again at 10pm tomorrow!
