When you are coming up with new ideas, it’s great to be inspired. This is true for wedding design, interior design and just about anything else creative. Looking at wedding blogs for wedding inspiration makes sense. But I also find that looking slightly inside what I want to create can really super charge my creativity.
These are 4 cool places for new design ideas, cool artists and general creativity. I hope they help get your creativity flowing:
scissors + paper rock!
For some of the coolest things you can do with paper, scissors + paper rock! is the place. This blog features really talented indie designers. And it showcases everything from paper installation art to intricate papercuts done by hand. As a fan of dimension in paper design, this is a favorite place for me.
Proof that great design doesn’t have to be stuffy or out of reach. Eddie Ross’ blog is full of tips for great style on a normal person’s budget, including entertaining, design, and yes, DIY. One of my favorite posts is just Eddie in a Dollar Store picking out beautiful and affordable table decor…great for a wedding. He features amazing inspiration for table setting design, including the first picture on this post.
Mod Podge Rocks!
First off, yes it does! For those of you who have yet to discover this miracle in a bottle, Mod Podge is a non-toxic water based glue and sealer that lets you do creative decoupage with paper and fabric. And for great ideas on what you can decoupage, this site is inspiration heaven.
