Art brings a new perspective of life to the maker and the viewer . I feel it is essential to the soul and fills mine personally with inspiration, imagination and transcendence. It actually makes us change the way we think about certain things, and opens up our minds to the views of others....a very healthy activity for all ages and cultures.
Art is a topic I am very passionate about.
Original art isn't just for collectors or deep pockets anymore, it is for everyone. There is a trend today of 'vehicles' that bring art to us at every price point. This is a remarkable concept that is spreading like wildfire these days (think Etsy, Ebay).
Today I am reviewing a great source:
Minted's mission is to gather communities of independent artists, illustrators, textile designers, packaging designers, and stay-at-home moms and bring their talents to you via their online marketplace.
You can customize your art selection by size, quality of the paper, frame selection (11 to choose from) and oftentimes different color ways.
There are many opportunities through Minted for artists to submit designs, enter design challenges, win cash prizes and sell your designs on Minted. You can also customize a gallery wall, or select fabric printed to order in many different colorways. The site is really multi-faceted and will take you through decorating your walls to personalizing your stationary, cards and party decor. Their new collection of Save the Date cards is their latest addition.
Check out Minted for your next dose of inspiration.
