cut & paste.
i am an addict…magazines are my drug. i can’t get enough of design magazines. and with so many of out favorites disappearing (boo, hoo domino, i’ll never get over you), i am really glad i save them, and i tear my favorite pages out to paste into design journals. my little brother used to think i was mad – “what are you doing tearing up those stacks and stacks of magazines? get a life!”. ah, go on and mock me, but I find them invaluable inspiration. even the old journals, from many years ago, bring me so much pleasure to look through. i like seeing how my tastes evolves, and also stays quite the eclectic same.
so i keep these design journals*, cutting and pasting my favorite bits into collages, and colorful pages that i never tire of turning. i save mostly interior decor, but also quotes that inspire me, and wardrobe styling ideas. pretty much anything that strikes my fancy. got stacks of magazines, or tear sheets you don’t know what to do with? i highly recommend a little cut & pasting. (*tip: i use these).
