Be Inspired - Wood

Words to Inspire

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”
John Lubbock

Idea to Inspire

Have you ever looked at the bark on a tree? I mean really look at it?  Not only does it have a lot of texture but if you look at it up close the details are amazing.  Take a few minutes and explore the bark on different trees in you neighborhood.  Let the details and the textures inspire you.

Photos to Inspire

Today's photos are all about texture.  These amazing natural wood photos are full of colors, textures, and designs that can inspire new ideas.  All of these photos are from Flickr.com.

  2. These are great photos!

    I have lots of driftwood pieces that were too pretty to let float away!

  3. I just don't even understand how nature does that every single day. It's astounding.

  4. That last shot reminds me of my dad's woodshop. He's got all kinds of salvage and new wood piles laying about. I really miss hanging around there with him...
