I am taking it as a given that you now all know about Pinterest, the virtual web based scrapbook, if you don’t please take a look and get involved. Beware, it is highly addictive!! 😉 I previously wrote about my new found love of Pinterest here.
If you already follow me over on Pinterest you will know one of the favourite boards I have created is ‘Colours, Patterns, Textures‘. I pin A LOT on that board! I pin a wide range of images, that I enjoy, and find inspiring. This board then allows me, and anyone else who would like, to go back and revisit them whenever a burst of inspiration is required, or just a feast for the eyes. I am continually adding to this board, usually on a Sunday morning over a cup of tea!
I did think about splitting up this board, but I found it impossible to distinguish which of the 3 elements above, some pictures solely fell into. So I am going to stick with it as it is, and not going to confuse things! The title says it all and flicking through these images is such a joy for me, and hopefully you too!
The images come from a wide range of sources, and depict a wide range of subjects. From geometric paintings, to close up images of nature. From elements of architecture to a masterpiece of woven fabric. It is incredible where beauty can be found and captured. I plan to start a series of posts on here with my own images and photographs that can be filed under the above title, that I hope you enjoy. But first I thought I had better introduce the board to you!
Below are a very select group of images taken from my board. Please head on over and have a look at the rest! I would love it if you followed me over there, and kept up to date with my discoveries. Also, if you know of any boards you think I would be interested in I would love to know about them, please leave a comment below and I will take a look!
