Pinterest is amazing!

So if anyone hasn't yet discovered pinterest, this is me recommending how wonderful it is! I find as an art student, you spend a lot of time collecting folders of images to be printed and stuck into books, it is a fairly lengthy process, and does make you wonder if you are doing a degree in cutting and sticking...

I now use Pinterest to collect together groups of images for various purposes, for ideas, mood boards, favourite artists, things to make etc. And as it saves a description, and links back to the original images, you don't have to wonder where it came from, very useful when you are one of those people who would save files and forget which artist the image was by, always helpful during artist research

You can see mine over here

Here are some lovely things I have pinned.
