As a Lancashire lass born and bred, I always enjoy a pilgrimage back over t’other side of t’Pennines, and this weekend I was back there to visit my parents. We took a trip to go and see the Blackpool Illuminations (properly known as T’Loominations) on Saturday night, with a stroll along the promenade to see the tableaus (most of which have been there since my childhood), wrapped up warm in our jackets and enjoying some hot doughnuts to keep us warm. Hardly anything has changed about the Illuminations since my childhood, all those 30-40 years ago. Kind of comforting to revisit it.

As always, the colour swatch can be downloaded here to use in your own work. Enjoy!
