Saturday Link List - Pinterest quotes

I don't visit the Pinterest site too often, but I like to go and look at the artwork and food and interior decorating.  Kind of like looking in a magazine!  I've been seeing some nice quotes here and decided to make a board of Quotes, where I could save some that I like.  Many are from art journals, and they are my favorite.



Carolyn Sewell doesn't have a blog, but her flickr site has a bunch of great artwork like this high 5 drawing.  OK, it's not a quote, but it's so inventive!  So you see, one person sees something they like (it was Sarah Al-Rukhayyes,) they put it on pinterest, and then I see it, and show you, etc.  Just remember, when you're on Pinterest, respect the intellectual property rights of the original source.   Here's a page about terms and privacy.


I found this artwork on one of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer's boards (it's hers).  Julie (of Balzer Designs) is one of my favorite mixed media artist/teacher/designers.   I love her stencils, and one day, when I have money back in my paypal account, I will buy some of her stencils.  She also has some online classes - I'd like to learn more about stamping from her Stamp Carving 101.

I've never heard of Norman Vincent Pace, but I like this quote, and the font is great.  I found it on a pinterest board (via caitlinburdick). She found it on prettystuff's tumblr site, who also has a "pretty little blog " but doesn't spend a lot of time there.


This quote-on-tag came from my "Eyecatching" board, pinned by Jennifer Sloane.  If you like scrapbooking, you'll love her Scrapbook Inspiration board.  Jennifer found it on  Victoria Schrom's blog called Paper Squirrel.  It was a challenge entry from June 2011.  I just love these tags; don't know if people would be willing to buy them, but I want to buy some large tags and try my hand at them.  I feel a list coming on...  



Since other people have their "quoted" artwork on pinterest, I decided to place one of my pieces on my Quotes board too:  I ♥ Snow.  Here's something from my Etsy shop.  If you leave a price in your description on Pinterest, it will also tag the price on the upper left corner of the photo.  Nice marketing tool!

Great idea! There are so many inspiring quotes floating around now. I really like the ones that are journal pages, too.
