One of the projects from last year was to create a visual diary containing things that inspires us. I loved that project, and ended up creating 3 sketchbooks packed full of stuff. Take a look at a few pages here.
I’ve decided that I need something to keep me going, so I’ve bought myself a lovely new sketchbook and I’m hoping to continue collecting inspiration and putting it somewhere it’ll stay for me to look back on. I find myself wanting to doodle and glue and stick and struggle because everything is digital nowadays really! Although I LOVE Pinterest, I love to cut and stick that little bit more.
Here are a few pages of my new creation!
As well as my visual diary all year I’ve been collecting things to pin on my board. I bought some elastic and spent ages at the start of the year crisscrossing and pinning all of this, but now I think it was totally worth it as I use it all the time. The idea is that now I don’t have to scrabble around for pins, and also I don’t have to make holes in things I want to put up.
I really feel it makes my room less like student digs and more homely, along with the curtains I swapped out for ones my mum made for me, and my bunting I made last year!
Here it is, with my fairy lights! And a few of the postcards I got from the V&A and around London.
