Blog Link Up: Inspiration Check In

Do you ever feel like you're taking in more inspiration than you can handle? The internet makes it so easy to just sit back and take in more and more information, and without the conscious decision to stop and process it, things can quickly reach an overwhelming place. Several things have given me pause to consider this fact, but now I've decided to do something about it! It was really this blog post by Rachel at Citrus and Mint that gave me the push I needed. Today I'm going to share a few images that are really inspirational to me and how I'm going to actually use that inspiration in real life. I'd love to hear what's inspiring you too! So at the end of the post don't miss your chance to link up with your inspiration check in.

There's no wrong way to go about writing a post like this, the main thing is to take a moment to stop and consider what's influencing you and what you want to be influencing you. You can do like Rachel did and write about a single artist/designer. Or you pick a few images you've seen and saved recently on Pinterest and discuss why you picked them. I'm going to pick an idea that I've felt pulling me lately. Or you can do something else. That's what makes these blog link ups so great!

Lately I've been drawn to strong, yet simple magazine style design.

Magazine Style

I'm loving clean lines, bold blocks of color and not a lot of fuss.

Bold Blocks of Color

Interesting use of white space.

It's been slowly taking over my own designing.

I'm looking forward to exploring more bold lines and blocks in my coming designs as well.
