Inspiration Board Tutorial

Do you have an Empty Inspiration Board?

Clueless as to what to put on it and how to make it look nice and neat?

 Your in Luck!

Because today I have a tutorial that will help you know what to do.

You will need a Blank Bulletin Board of any particular size that you want.

Push Pins off different shapes, colors and sizes

 Varied sizes of your own artwork and doodles

Vintage style images or any kind of style that represents you.
I love everything about the word VINTAGE!

Informational sheets, business cards, movie tickets and candy wrappers...just to name a few.

...and even scraps of paper with patterns and colors all to your liking. 


Oh and don't forget your focal point, an image that is larger than the rest and stands out the most. In this case it's just my favorite image from a Mucha calender from last year!

Then place your focal point in the middle or anywhere else you want you or your viewers eye to focus on.

Then add pictures bordering your focal point like so in any arrangement that you want.

Fill your inspiration board to every last inch that way no space is left untouched. Now personally I like tons of things to look at and all of the spaces full but if you wish to leave spaces to breathe fill free to cover as much or as little space as you want.

  And there you have it...TA-DA!

I'm telling you this board not only inspires me, but adds color and interest to my room. They are essential to any artists creative process. They need to be a piece of artwork all on their own because they are a quick glimpse of who you are as an artist! Enjoy creating!
