Feeling inspired





all collages from Faran Krentcil's tumblr


I haven't blogged in so long, I left my job in January and kinda felt like I didn't really have anything to blog about so I moved over to tumblr for a while.
This week however I came across Faran Krentcil's tumblr (Faran is the Digital Director for Nylon Online) and I loooooove it. I read about her in the new Topshop instore magazine and her love for making scrapbooks and collages when she was younger. Her tumblr shows pages from her notebooks and has inspired me to finally do something with all the notebooks I buy and am given. Maybe I'll share some on here once I get going.

I've kept scrapbooks for a long time, but these are more A3 research books for inspiration. I'm pleased my A5 books will now have a proper use. I love tumblr and blogging, and am slowly coming round to Pinterest, but digital media can never really beat a good old pen and paper or magazine.

Do you scrapbook/collage ?

  3. Thanks! So glad you like them!!! One favor - this post makes it seem a little bit like the images above are from your scrapbooks. Would you mind clarifying they're from my scrapbooks? xo F
