I think it’s all a learning curve, I know my first UX and UI project that I had taken up a long time back. No one was there to guide me, no external resources, I couldn’t afford to pay for a degree etc. Somehow I kept on researching and kept on pinning a lot of pins on Pinterest and it has become on of my best places for finding inspiration and many other ideas related to UI and UX, branding, style guides etc.
I would suggest you use Pinterest and search for specific elements and keywords and keep pinning for your future projects and inspiration.
Great going keep it up.
