PROC 0 - RANDOM WALK

I spent a few hours browsing Pinterest and gluing together a bunch of pins into something, but it never coalesced into a whole-ass form. (I won't link the board here.) Of course I added things I liked and I removed things I disliked but this is no procedure; this is a random walk. It's not going to take me anywhere at all.

PROC 1 - FIND SOMEONE ELSE'S INSPO BOARD

Based on How to Use Pinterest Effectively,

1. Think of something that inspires you. Can be an adjective, a character, a celebrity, a colour scheme, a specific piece of clothing.

2. Search for the seed term, something that appeals to you. (* Get in touch with your sense of taste. You don't need to be able to describe what appeals to you so long as you feel it and trust in the feeling.)

3. Find a board that's well-executed.

4+. Repeat, following pins to find more boards. Get a lot of boards. These are resources.

As far as I can tell this advice revolves around finding boards! That's cool.
