Finished inspiration board

I'm done! I have finished the board. Most of it anyway. I have put a few things on it but it was more for show. So here it is. The story.
This is how I painted the board. I thought I would paint it a bit messy.

My board with ribbon and pins. It looks nothing like the picture I posted before. But the book was the inspiration to make the board so I guess it doesn't really have to look like it.

And here is the finished version of the board with a few bits to make it look pretty. I will make it look better but I was trying to decorate it this morning quickly before leaving for the movies. I might post other pictures of it another time.

I watched this movie today. The first day it came out here in Aus. It was awesome! Jason has been looking forward to this movie for over a year and he has finally be able to watch it. I do have to say that I was quite impressed. The Transformers were amazing! And I do have to say newcomer Shia Lebeouf did great. It is definately fast becoming a new favourite of mine =)I recommend it.

This is the other movie that I am obsessed about. I wasn't even really going to watch this movie but Jason's brother said it was good so we did just a few days ago. I loved it. It is filled with action, emotion and a beautiful soundtrack. It really makes you think, especially about the conflict diamonds they showed in the movie. I have always liked Djimon Hounsu and he was awesome in it. And Leonardo Dicaprio. Well I used to have a massive crush on him from Romeo and Juliet and Titanic when I was around 12/13 but since then I never really rated him or anything. But this movie changed my mind. I totally respect him as an actor and I couldn't help but find him hot in it =) The South African accent was great. So he has become one of my favourite actors. It's also become another favourite film. Has anyone seen it? I fully recommend it as well as Transformers.

To make....

I'm loving holidays. It's going to be hard to get back to uni. I have been doing heaps of relaxing and planning things to make. My latest creation besides my little note cards is making an inspiration board. I have this book that was given to me that has given me the inspiration to make a board.
This is the book that was given to me for my birthday this year. It's a beautiful book with lovely photos.
This is a photo of the project that my board was inspired from. But mine is quite a bit different. I can't post photos of it yet as I didn't have enough ribbon. =(
I'm showing some of the items that I have used for my board. I need another reel of ribbon. And I have to colour in my butterlies. This board is going into the study/my soon to be crafting room. I'm just going to paint a wall first and turn it into a whole inspiration wall.
I had to add a photo of a present I got from one of my best friends. My birthday was in February but thought I would post this photo. I love it. The book is great! I love the photo frame and the shoe too. She also made me a mixed cd and personalised the cover pages. And the paper is a picture she created for me.
Thanks everyone for all the lovely comments. They are very much appreciated.

A few more

I want to say thank you to everyone who has been commenting. Thanks so much. It means so much when people comment and I really appreciate it =)

I'm on holidays from uni! Yay! I'm really excited to be finished for the semester. Only one more to go!

Anyway, I made a few more mini notecards. I really enjoy making them. They're the best size for little 'just because' notes and I love them being blank so it can be used for nearly any occassion.

I like the papers and colours of this one. I enjoy incorporating butterflies with my notecards.

I used tiny pastel coloured buttons in this one. I love those teeny buttons. I really want to get more.

I thought I would make another woodland creatures set as I gave my other notecards away.

It's hard to see the white roses on the paper. I love this paper. The cards are a bit stretched in the 2nd picture. Oops =)

I hope everyone is well.

Some things I made

I have only one more exam and to hand in one more assignment and I am finished for the semester. I will have about 6 weeks off! Yay! I'm quite excited as I have many things I need to do and finish up. While I was doing my major paper I took breaks and watched Stars Wars =) while making a few things.

I call this my cute woodland creatures mini notecard set.

This is just a different view. I enjoy making these while watching movies. It takes longer that it looks though.

I love those long necklaces with charms on the bottom of them. I think they're lovely. So I enjoy making them as well and finding lots of different charms. Though I seem to have trouble with it sometimes.

A close up of the charms. I love turquoise as well.

I really like these earrings. I don't really wear dangly ones but I will on occasion. And I like taking photos using my little teacup and saucer.

I thought I would experiment with those invisible line things. I like pearls and pearly surfaces.

This is my sweet tiny butterfly mini notecard collection. I love making little notecards with matching envelopes.

A closer look at the envelopes. The little butterfly matches the background paper of the notecards. And the paper of the envelope matches the little butterflies on the notecards.

This gives a closer look at one of the notecards. The wings are meant to come off the page as I wanted to look as though they're flying =)

And that's it. Since I should be going on holidays soon I'm sure to be making more. While watching movies.

A few fave things

I'm so close to being on holidays. I have an exam and an assignment left. Yay. I'm looking forward to having time off from studying. Anyway, I made something simple of a few of my fave things. I thought I would have fun with photoshop. I made a mini montage of some of my fave things. The pink
journal as I love journals and writing in them or using them for ideas. I prefer
blank pages so I can sketch and put little bits and pieces in them. The cupcake stand because I have the exact same one given to me for christmas. Plus I love cupcakes. The butterfly necklace to represent my love for butterflies. The teacups as I love tea and pretty teacups. The stationary shows my love for paper and for writing letters. And the ballet flats are to show my obsession with ballet flats =)
I have more things but this seem to be the best ones to use for the moment.
I also want to say thanks to everyone who has been commenting on my blog. Thanks so much =) Have a happy day!

This is for Zabrina at Pixie Blossoms. She asked if I could make some links to the items =)
A. A5 Soft cloth Pink Journal from Kikki.K $24.95 (This is an Australian site but it is Swedish design).

B. Maxwell & Williams Casa Domani Chantilly 3 Tier Cake Stand Pink - $29.95 from Home Couture (Though this can be bought from many different Homeware stores. Again I'm not sure about overseas. Mine was a present so not sure which store it came from).

C. Diva Hanging Butterfly Charm necklace from the Secret Garden range - $24.95 from Diva.

D. The teacup and saucer are from Royal Doulton. It's from the Old Country Roses Range. The price are in pounds as I found this on the British site. I borrowed these same teacups from a friend for my 22nd birthday. For the American site go to Royal Doulton US.

E. This is from Lantern Paper Each writing set is $24.95.

F. These ballet flats are from French Sole They are from the Harriet range. These are in pounds as well. But there should be several different boutiques that hold them. In Australia they are available at Miss Chic Boutique Not all styles though.

And thats it. I hope to make another post of some of my creations I have been doing while taking a break from uni work.
