Elmer Day 2018

When I was a little girl I had an Elmer book which was one of my favourite books in the whole world. Elmer is colourful. Elmer is fun. Elmer is kind…

Elmer taught me that it was okay to be different, something that I only really understood much, much later.

So Elmer is one of my all-time heroes even after all this time.

This is why when I heard that Elmer Day was coming, I HAD TO draw and paint him.

My fox wanted to joins its Leicester peers in celebration.

It was very tempting after all.

So congratulations on winning the 2015-16 Premier League guys!

Quotes & Handwriting

In many ways writing is like drawing. Even more so when you really take care and put in your best effort to write neatly. I really like handwritten notes and messages, and as I am one of those people lucky enough to have a nice handwriting (or so I was told), I thought I would play around with it today.

 

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all of you who frequently come to my blog. You are awesome! There’s no better way to say it.

I’m a bit busy with this children’s book I’m working on at the moment which is why I don’t post things as regularly as I used to; but it’s all good fun and a great experience, and I am hoping that I can share a bit of this with you when the book is published.

Also, another children’s book that I worked on is currently in the process of being published so once it is out, you will be among the first people to know (my mum will be first, I hope you don’t mind). Once again, I am hoping to post a few sketches and illustrations when the book is out.

So keep coming back, there will be a few new things up soon. And again: THANK YOU!

All You Need Is Love

This post is for you all: whether it’s your first visit to my blog or you are following me everyday, thank you! I wish you a good day filled with love.

Colours!

Are you tired of the cold, unpredictable weather? Are you looking forward to spring and all the nice colours that the nature displays every year?
 
Here is a short blog for you then!
 
Spring is just around the corner now but you don’t have to wait for it to be there to look at the nice colours around you. If you need a little help to bring colour into your life, take a look at a website I really like called design seeds (http://design-seeds.com/). Whether you are redecorating your home, trying to choose colours for your website or blog, or making greeting cards design seeds offers you hundreds of colour palettes to look at and to take inspiration from. And if you just need a bit of colour in your life it works too!
 
The palettes are all associated with a photo and if you really like a colour and want to see what it looks like in combination with other colours all you have to do is click on the corresponding colour square in the “see similar colors” section on the right and tadaaaa! You get to a new page with new palette suggestions.
You can also search by colour and by theme and if you are a social media fan you can share your favourite palettes. 
 
This really is a fantastic tool!
 
I love browsing the site searching for colours I like and I have used it as a source of inspiration for the greeting cards I make as well as some logos I designed before.
 
I hope you check this website and enjoy the visit when you do. 
 
And do not forget: life in colour is so much more exciting!
