Pinterest Art

I've been having a really rough week this week, so excuse the slow down on posts! I've got some photos to show of our cleaning sprees though so I'll get Rob to email them to me.

I've been absolutely itching to recreate this idea that I found on pinterest:

I imagine it above our bed and with a different poem/ lyric. The problem is that I can't seem to find one that I like with a whole bunch of lines. 

I really like the tail end of the Old Astronomer to His Pupil by Sarah Williams.

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Obviously that's wayyy too short though. I'll keep thinking. 

I want it to go above the bed, like so:

Don't know what pinterest is? (Fellow bloggers avert your eyes! This is mainly for my family! ha) It's a site where you pin up all of your favorite images. It's like tearing out a page in a magazine to keep for inspiration, except its cataloged online. You can also search for inspiration for projects, like 'stairwell art' if you're stuck and need help. It also has images and purposes beyond just design, there are fashion images, recipes and pictures of yummy food, landscapes, art, etc. Warning though, it's addicting. 

If you want to join I can send you an invite/explain it in better detail. I won't offer for people to follow me though, mainly because my pinterest account is in my full name, but also because mine is just a jumble of inspiration and I don't read other people's boards anyways. I don't have time for that! :)

  1. Elz, I like that quote too. Couldn't you do a set of quotes on a theme across nine squares like that, rather than one whole poem? You could create some interesting shapes with the white space by indenting and having different fonts too I think.


Let's chat! Nothing is more exciting then a new comment! :)

PS - if you do not have a google account, just comment with Name/URL so I can know who is saying hello!
