Beauty in Nature

I am in love with this time of year!
There is so much beauty all around,
my camera has been very busy!

I have been flower pressing for awhile now,
everywhere I go I love to collect fresh flowers,
take their pictures and then into the press they go!
I got mine from Etsy years ago,
all you have to do is visit Etsy
and search "Flower Presses"

Watercolor sketching is a way of life for me,
and I love having lots of new things
to sketch and paint!
So here is a little inspiration for you,
flowers I have collected
along my way in just the past few weeks!

I love pressing flowers! I encourage you 
to give it a try if you haven't done so!
You can use them for so many things!
It's always wonderful to learn something new.
Whenever I travel, I love collecting
momentos and treasures that I can use later.

Here is my most recent treat . . .  It's what's on my nightstand.
"Plants are Magic"
Rebecca Desnos
I found her on Instagram a long time ago
and she helps you fall in love with Botanicals.
I fell in love with her first book
"Botanical Colour at Your Fingertips"
you can find her HERE

I hope that your week is filled with
beauty, love and all good things.
Take time to observe Nature,
certainly in all of it's beauty right now!
