15.06.14Inspiration Board

willow&eve inspiration board3

I've been wanting to make one of these inspiration boards for some time now. My own little collection of things that remind me why life is so great and why I do the things that I do. These boards are certainly not an original idea, but you can be as creative and original in your design as you like.

I collected a bunch of images that I love for whatever reason and started from there……

I've just come back from a few glorious days in what would have to be one of the most stunning places on earth, Queenstown. Somehow though, amongst all that beautiful sunshine, I managed to catch a cold. My head is now somewhere between a state of dizziness and floating in the clouds and I've struggled enough trying to attach these photos, so I'm not going to attempt to say too much about my time in Queenstown.

  • Glue (something that dries clear – I used Mod Podge which works brilliantly)
  • Sponge paint brush
  • Tape (if you want straight lines)

Over the hill, down the windy road. Welcome to a little part of Mr Abel Tasman's greatest discovery.
 
The adventurer in me set out to explore this wonderful part of the world, tucked into the northern coastline of New Zealand's south island. This is Kaiteriteri. Golden sand meets clear bluey green water. I'm told this little spot is packed in the summertime and I can see why. This is the kind of place that reminds me of my childhood beachside holidays..You just can't help but smile, breathe in the fresh air and forget any worries you had prior to arriving.
