I love Instagram

7 January

Instagram for my other design meanderings

I only recently joined Instagram, which is silly really as it’s totally my kind of format. My mind works in images and I love collecting and sharing things. It’s also the sort of medium that welcomes more arty left-field photography without anyone accusing you of being too trendy. My favourite autumn past time has been making still life set ups and putting a lovely instagram filter over the top.

I helped my dad one weekend before christmas by climbing his hazel tree to cut down some branches. I cut one down with a little empty birds nest in. I used the branches to make a wreath for Christmas. I couldn’t resist making a little moss and hazel nests around it with a fig and flower from the garden to finish it off.

I quite my photoshoot fiddling and added ivy and some berries to the wreath, put the nest in there and hung it on the front door. Pretty good for garden waste.
