Inspiring Art

I have a board on Pinterest aptly titled "art". I see so many amazing pieces of art in my day to day perusing that make my heart sing so it's nice to have a place to save them all. Most of them serve as inspiration of art I would love to DIY for myself. Not that I'm an artiste or anything but I would certainly love to try!

This is one of the more unique ideas I've come across. Wouldn't it be a great way to display an old wedding dress or a child's tutu possibly?

I love this idea! Since Scott and I wrote our own wedding vows I think it would be so sweet to make some art using them.

This one feels similar to my drippy painting.

This would be great in a soft color palette. I'm picturing various shades of gray, sepia, and gold...

Although not a piece of art, I find this display very inspiring! I know most of us probably have a million sample cans of paint lying around (I know I do!) that we could use to do this.

Now this room is stunning and overall just gorgeous right! That inky wall is really doing it for me. The artwork there is just fantastic and the palette is right up my alley!

I guess I just have art on the brain lately because I'm building up my collection for a HUGE artwall in my living room. I'm hoping to do a mix of bought art and art made by me. If you had told me even a year ago I would be making my own art I would have laughed in your face! But I've been bitten by the art bug and now I'm full of ideas and desire to create! It's wonderful! Have you made anything lately?

Stay tuned tomorrow for a round up of all my weekend projects!
