On this journey to talk about all things Adventure related, I have spent a lot of time gathering inspiration from other artists to get the creative juices flowing. For those of you that aren’t used to this kind of research, let me clarify. I never, ever, in a million years, cross-my-fingers-hope-to-die, will copy another artists work. The point of seeking out other artists, is because you can learn a ton from what other people have done before you. It’s the same reason we make moodboards, and keep pinterest accounts, and follow each other on instagram. It’s inspiring to see what other artists and designers have thought of that you haven’t. And it gives you a foundation from which to build from. Kind of a jumping off point. Maybe their great idea triggers a different great idea in you. Or maybe you just sit back in awe and wish you could be so brilliant.
I’m about to show you several people that made me do the latter.
These are all different artists that I have found in my scouting of the internet, that are doing some brilliant pieces that, in my opinion, are very much in the Adventure spirit.
These darling little mountain peaks are to die for. I love that they come in so many different colors and would be perfect for a nursery. There are several companies that make these, and they all have their own style and spin on the aesthetics.
How awesome are these prints?! The colors, the geometry, the patterns, all perfection. And I like that they are semi-abstract. I see mountains, but what do you see?
I love when someone is handy with wood, and Amokori has nailed it. They make everything from boxes (like these) to candle holders, to magnets, you name it, and they are all adorable. There is more than one item on my to-buy list when their store opens back up this week.
I have fallen in love with these embroideries from the Wildness Co. So dainty, yet definitely make me what to strike out on a roadtrip to somewhere sunny and wide open.
I pinned this one awhile ago because I would love to have one for Mike and I. We both love maps and traveling, so this makes the perfect little home accessory. Plus, mountains, and we all know I love mountains.
Last, but DEFINITELY not least, these gorgeous paper cuts from Hello Laura Jane have me swooning. Seriously, the detail! And she does all kinds of flowers, but put together they have me feeling very garden/jungle-esque. I want them all!
All of these amazing people also have gorgeous instagrams I that highly recommend following. (Pssst! That’s how I found most of them!) But I hope you found as much inspiration from them as I have. Anyone you know of that I left off? I would love to see their work!
