CURIOUS RUBY: to inspire...

 
“But the truth is, it's not the idea, it's never the idea, it's always what you do with it."
- Neil Gaiman
 
When it comes to blogging, there are a few things that inspire us when we're struggling for ideas. We're visual people, so whether it be flipping through our favourite magazines, trawling Pinterest or scrolling through other blogs, visual media is the key when we're searching for that light bulb moment.
 
Seeing the world through someone else's eyes can transform something that was once mundane into a brilliant idea. A pair of eyes we've been inspired to look through is Ruby's, traveller and emerging artist hailing from the sunny city of Brisbane, she is the mastermind behind Curious Ruby.  Her designs are dominated by geometric lines and shapes, and bold colours which are sure to get those creative juices flowing.
 
We were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to pick a print from CuriousRuby.com to bring, as Ruby so wonderfully put it, "a little inspiration from my space to yours". 

 
 
Ruby also drew an ACED original just for us!
  
 
We originally picked out one of Ruby's prints, but she also kindly sent us Bloom, an ink and watercolour print. These photos don't do this amazing piece justice. Looking at it now, the bright and vivid colours are a lot more striking.

 Kaleidoscope sits pride of place right in our creative space. The ink colour print gives a tribal vibe that has our minds racing with ideas.
