Dash of Inspiration: Be Inspired

September 30, 2013

A Dash of Inspiration, A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Be Inspired

Today I thought I’d share a few sites where you as an artist, can not only be inspired by others, but can inspire other artists. By sharing your knowledge, things you find which inspire you and your own designs, you may not only be inspired to create great things, but … you can be inspiring!

Inspiration (from the Latin inspirare, meaning “to breathe into”) refers to an unconscious burst of creativity in a literary, musical, or other artistic endeavor.

Artists Inspire Artists is a wonderful site.  Free to browse, be inspired and free to upload your own art to offer as inspiration to other artists.

Colour Lovers is always a great stop for seeing current and seasonal color trends.  I’m often inspired simply by a color palette that sends my imagination off it a new direction.

You the Designer website has various features which can provide inspiration for typography, photography and art/design.

Today’s FREEBIES are some new fonts offered by our friends at Font Squirrel … why are they our friends, you ask? Because you can trust that the fonts offered on Font Squirrel allow CU and most of them are absolutely free!

Vast Shadow – a nice font for those great Chalkboard resources Corrie passed on last week.

Henny Penny – a very fun font which is great for kids and even some bright and cheerful holiday cards.

So, until next week … Learn … Create … Inspire!
