Color Inspiration #4

Hello all! I hope you are having a bright & cheery Wednesday!! I am bringing you all my fourth installment of color inspiration today on the 4th day of this brand new year- I hope everyone had a beautiful New Years!

Recently, I have been researching & finding pictures for a potential project in Austin, TX. This particular project is near to my heart because, well I am part hippie...or like to think I am anyway. Back to the story, everyone here at the design firm I work at have to contribute 15 total images that we think represent Austin. Everyone thinks of longhorns, UT, & music such as ACL & SXSW. However, when I hear Austin I think arsty, hippies, food trucks, & being one with nature. So on my quest to discover unique images I found a couple images down in Austin of a couple trees that had been "knit bombed" by Knitta Please (learn more about the group here).

Has anyone heard of this "knit bombing" or "yarn bombing"? I didn't know it was called that before my research but, I have noticed every once in awhile when I go to Micheals craft store the columns in front are covered in knit. I think this concept of making street graffiti a little more warm & cozy is a fabulous idea! Plus, it brings a little inspiring color into the world! I kind of touched on this subject a while back with parisian potholes were being decorated by activist Juliana Santacruz Herrera- check my post out here.

Without further anticipation, here are a couple "knit bombing" episodes I find inspiring!

Have a happy colorful day!

peace & love,
