We all tend to fall into a creative rut sometimes and finding inspiration and motivation to start on your new project or to complete a project you’ve been working on for a while can be tough. I find that taking a break, reading a good book or browsing the plethora of gorgeous images on Pinterest often helps re-ignite my creative spark.
If you haven’t joined Pinterest yet and wondering what all the fuss is about, let me shed some light on the whole thing. Pinterest is an online virtual moodboard to which you can ‘pin’ images from around the web to various themed ‘boards’. The images essentially retain their original web link so you can always ‘pin’ the image, return to it later and it will take you directly back to the blog or website where it originally appeared. There is also an option to set up ‘secret’ boards should you wish to collaborate with other creatives without letting slip any spoilers about the project you’re working on. Overall, it is great to browse and get your inspiration flowing again but it must also come with a warning. It’s a serious time suck and you can often loose several hours delving into the inspirational wonders that is Pinterest.
I recently set up some boards to curate a series of images I have pinned that I think are awesome and hope you’ll find them helpful too if you’re looking for anything colour specific. The boards themselves are based on the CMYK printing process (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) plus I have created one for the colour white. You can click on the links below to take you directly to each board.
The images taken on my iPhone below were also inspired by the creation of these colour boards and are simply a collection of objects I have in my office. (Yes, I have a lot of random stuff lying around, all in organised chaos I must add!)
Have fun and I hope you get your creative mojo back soon. Thanks for stopping by!
