National Creativity Day | Creating A Wall Of Inspiration With Reeves


In light of tomorrow being National Creativity Day, I decided, with the help of Reeves, to get my creative juices flowing. I think it is good for the soul to do something creative whether it is to write, play an instrument, take some photographs, do some gardening or get creative with arts and crafts. 

When I was younger I used to love doing Art at school but I think that it is something we can easily not make time for in the adult world. Something always seems to be more important when you work full time and have a home. This is why I think that something like National Creativity Day is really important, because it allows us to take a step back and dedicate some time for ourselves. 

A WALL OF INSPIRATION


I am a huge fan of wall art and I love feature walls in living rooms and bedrooms. I felt very inspired by the mix-matched walls that are so popular on Instagram and Pinterest. I like that there is a mixture of different types of text, different sizes of print and a lot of different frames etc.

So I decided to make something that I could use in order to have my own wall of inspiration. I wanted to keep things simple and so I made some postcards with plain backgrounds that I could write inspirational quotes on. I have a small section of a wall in my living room that I have slowly been adding pieces to, and this became the perfect excuse to add some more. 


MY INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES


When deciding what quotes I wanted to include on my Wall of Inspiration, I had a bit of a think about what I thought would inspire me. I spent a while looking on Pinterest for different ideas and this is what I picked out;

‘Love People & Use Things Because The Opposite Never Works’
‘Collect Moments Not Things…’
I Would Rather Own A Little & See The World Than Own The World & See A Little’
‘Fill Your Life With Stories To Tell Not Stuff To Show’
‘We Buy Things We Don’t Need With Money We Don’t Have To Impress People We Don’t Know’

CRAFT SUPPLIES


- Small Bowl 
- Tap Water

HOW TO 


- Pick out your favourite colours from the Reeves Water Colour Pencil Pack
- Using one sheet of the Reeves Water Colour Paper at a time, gently cover the whole sheet with one of the Water Colour Pencils
- Once covered, put some tap water in a small bowl and dab in the Reeves wide head brush 
- Gently brush the pre-coloured paper with the wet brush until the paint is evenly blended and allow to dry
- Whilst the paper is drying, plan out which quotes you want to write out to add to your inspiration wall – Pinterest is great for this!
- Once dry, write your inspirational quotes onto the paper using a sharpie or thick-tipped pen
- Attach the finished postcards onto your Inspirational Wall using blue tack, washi tape or wall pins
