So one of my best birthday gifts ever was a membership to Kew Gardens this year. I have been a couple of times already and I just love it. It is such a beautiful place to wander around and explore and it is kind of amazing that you're still in London, only 30 minutes away from home, but feel like you are anywhere but a big city. I am so excited to spend the weekends taking the baby for walks around these stunning gardens and discovering new bits that I haven't explored yet. I am also looking forward to experiencing it during all the different seasons. 

These are just a couple of photos from one of my recent visits. I didn't take loads but I am hoping to take my camera and use these days out as opportunities to get creative and improve my photography.

Have you ever been to Kew Gardens? Which were your favourite bits? I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful place to spend time at, that's so nearby.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

Colour inspiration from Kew Gardens

The other weekend we had family staying and the weather was really good so we decided to head off to Kew Gardens for a picnic and explore, which did not disappoint. There was just so many beautiful things to see and I loved it. I hadn't been since I was really young but I definitely want to go again soon. I think each season is quite different at Kew so it will be fun to go at different times of the year to see how the plants have changed. 

Anyway, as I was looking through all of the photos that I had taken I was really struck by the incredible colours. I am always on the hunt for interesting and beautiful colour palettes to use in my work so I thought it would be interesting to take some of my photos and put together some colour palettes from them.

I really enjoyed using these images as inspiration for colours and really like how some of the colour palettes came out. They are definitely the sort of thing that I would use in my work. I think what I might do over the next few weeks is pick one of these images each week and then create a bit of work using the colours that I chose. I will definitely share them here. I will probably experiment with some patterns and some hand lettering. 

I have been thinking recently that I want to create work that isn't for anything in particular but that is just about experimenting and having fun. 

Hope you are enjoying all the Autumn colours around at the moment. Happy Wednesday!
