I use my folder as an inspiration file. I gather and clip articles, photos, images and things that interest me. It's a quick and easy way for me not only to store favorite bits and articles, but also something light that I can bring with me on the go when I want reading material.
I don't have any wall space in my living room (a.k.a. art area), so, I'm limited with what I can hang up. However, my kitchen is my pinboard. I hang artwork from friends and artists I love. There's art everywhere including inside (and outside) of the kitchen cabinets. Everywhere you look in the kitchen there's something special to me that makes me smile.
Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. PST, I'm going to post some books that I have for sale. They're all collage books (so far). Books in, books out. Still sticking to it.
Do you have an inspiration file of some sort?
