Inspiration Board: Art that is ‘good for the soul’

1 Dec

I just discovered a blog via Pinterest. As you all must know, when you are on Pinterest, you never know where the wind might lead you. The angel’s of Pinterest led me today to a soul-ful blog, by an artist/entrepreneur named Alisa Burke.

I feel happy. I just watched the video (in the picture up above). It carries a fast-forward footage of Burke’s water-color sketching. All I can say is that watching this video is totally good for the soul, I watched it 2 times, and I am going for the third inshAllah.

I surf tens of blogs almost everyday, most of which are really good blogs, with tons of tutorials. But then comes your way a blog that touches you down beneath the crafts & DIY part of you, into the folds of your soul. This blog is one very good example of that. Enjoy!UPDATE: I keep on finding new tutorials on Burke’s blog, and I keep on adding them to this post, since they’re awesome. Here is a puff-paint on fabric DIY:
