We’ve had such fun judging the baby competition but we’ve finally made a decision on who really stood out. To everyone who entered, we can’t thank you enough for all the effort!
Keep an eye out for our next competition which will be launched in a couple of weeks as this time we’re going on the road! Don’t worry though, you can still enter from the comfort of your own home
A big congratulations to Rosie Relish who is our baby competition winner!!
The judges loved Rosie’s technique and use of line work, colour and texture to make some really nice illustrations. We felt that this design alone works perfectly as a card but also lends itself to gift wrap, bags and tags as well. Well done Rosie… we will be in touch soon : )
We really like Kate’s fun composition & her super cute character & hand lettering.
The characters in Wendy’s zoo print are really lovely as well as her fresh pastel colour palette.
We really like Nicola’s clever composition & use of editorial in her design.
Julie E Ansbro
Julie’s delicate pencil drawing sweetly conveys the precious nature of baby’s first shoes.
We love Kyan’s cute characters & the hot air balloon composition.
Love the way Daniela has incorporated her characters into the typography elements of her design.
We love Rosie’s colour palette, line work & her use of texture & pattern to add depth to her design.
If you’re ever in need of inspiration, you really should check out the website The House That Lars Built. It’s tagline is ‘an artful life’, which describes it perfectly! Among other things, it gives wonderful tutorials to DIY projects, which are then beautifully photographed. They also have an Etsy shop here, where you can purchase some of the handmade items…..I’m particularly tempted by the lovely paper roses!

Good luck to everyone who entered!! : )
As the title of this collection of pictures shows there is something hauntingly beautiful about abandoned amusement parks. It’s possibly because a derelict theme park represents everything that a functioning one doesn’t. The fun, laughter, colour and music replaced with rust, stillness, silence and desolation.
Take a look at all the great photographs here. Spooky and cool…
Check out this lovely bright colour palette I found by Kali Meadows. Find more of her lovely quirky illustrations HERE.
One of my favourite creative blogs, ‘But Does It Float’ often provide me with little snippets of profound inspiration especially on days like today.
Malcolm Muggeridge quote adds a huge dynamic to the images, “The only ultimate disaster that can befall us, I have come to realise, is to feel ourselves to be at home here on Earth”.

These miniature landscapes by Gregory Euclide are so inspiring, all that colour and texture makes them so striking. Theres so much pattern and detail through the layers of ink, paper and organic objects that i could look at it for hours! Have a look at his other work that he has exhibited here its definitely worth a look.
Loving this palette with a hint of neon yellow.
