Carly Waito paintings – Amethyst

Lately I’ve been immersed in other worlds. I’m reading a lot of books and due to what’s turning out to be a true Netflix-addiction I’m also seeing a lot of series and movies. I’ve been busy organizing my Pinterest boards and added some new ones. Do have a look and follow me there! I’m having a month off from the Trendacademy and I’m making the most of it by trying to get as much inspiration as possible. I’m reading stuff about sacred geometry and crystals and since synchronicity is a thing in my life these days I came across these beautiful painted crystals by Carly Waito. I chose to feature the amethyst stone since it’s one of my personal favorites. A stone that comes in different hues of purple and pink. Amethyst is considered a stone of spiritual protection and purification. It facilitates the higher mind and it allows one to take action based on higher guidance and spiritual understanding. There are a lot more properties attributed to them, for more information I recommend reading The Book of Stones by Robert Simmons & Naisha Ahsian; a comprehensive encyclopedia of stones, minerals and crystals. I wish you all a peaceful and balanced december! […]

Natalie Nicklin

Using Pinterest can be very comforting. You find out things about yourself you didn’t have a clue you had, like a dormant love for cute animal photo’s or you discover a distinct pattern in pinning. As I was searching for some inspiration I stumbled on the work of Natalie Nicklin and it was just the kind of thing that really resonated with me. I think she uses the perfect colour palet and the combination of abstract modern elements with the old fashioned collage is just beautiful. It lifted my spirits big time. What do you think? {1.
