snippet and ink

When I am designing I gain inspiration from allsorts of places, it could be a garden or a National Trust House, somebodies clothing, a bag or some stationery anyway I find inspiration in many places. When I am stuck for colour ideas I look on Kathryn's fabulous blog snippet and ink. Although it is theoretically a wedding blog, I find I go back to it time and again for all kinds of ideas. If you have any events coming up this summer (don't just think weddings) then have a look, I am sure you will be super inspired too. I am working on a couple of summer events at the moment - if you live in Gloucestershire check back for more info on the Amberley cow trail day in May. I was very inspired by these 2 lovely boards and will be using them as a basis for some of the refreshment stands for our cow trail day!

  1. I am seriously into red at the moment, can't stop noticing it when it's not been in vogue for a really long time, however thinking of planting red flower gardens this summer... quite like mixing in some hot pink too...plus i have a new red cardi which i love! (oh and a red teapot...)

  2. Absolutely inspiring post!
