Pinterest Inspired

When I surf Pinterest, I usually look at the pins of people I follow, but then I go to the Everything:Art or Design or Print and Posters. Here are a few from this week's sessions of surfing:







I stamped and embossed "hello" in clear and then just sponged away in different colours until I achieved the look I wanted (my last two colours were orange and then white over top!)



I loved the bright colours on the dark grey, highlighted with white.




I interpreted this one pretty literally - why mess with good design?


But, then the rebel in me took over and I funkified it (yes, it's a word, I don't know why spellcheck has underlined it in red! LOL!)


How do you use Pinterest? Where else do you go to get inspiration? I also look at the Art section on Etsy from time to time.
