I’ve always been quite ‘arty’ in that I make cards, sew, crochet etc. but over the last year I feel as though my crafts have developed further.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts I want to take my crafting on to the next step now, get my name out there, maybe even a craft fair or getting commissioned to do a project.
This past year I have been using social media a lot more with Twitter & my blog.
One platform I particularly like/appreciate is Instagram.
I realised yesterday that I have been using Instagram for 7 months now. In that time I have been so inspired by all of the wonderful work I have seen that I have:
1) Taken up Watercolour colour painting
2) Tried my hand at galaxy painting
My favourite of my galaxy paintings
3) Started flower drawing
4) And my biggest accomplishment over the last 7 months is teaching myself Calligraphy
Instagram has been such a source of inspiration over the last 7 months. I hope that some of my posts have inspired people to try crafts too.
I would also like to achieve this with my blog, so I hope I can share crafty techniques for people to use to create their own beautiful projects. My blog is now 3 months old and I so I hope to develop this further too.
Over on my Instagram post from today I have also posted links to a few of the many artists who have inspired me so far.
Do you have social media accounts where you find inspiration? Or maybe a different medium?
I’d love to know if you’d be happy to share, feel free to leave a comment.
Thank you for reading and happy crafting!
