But first of all a BIG THANK YOU to everybody who voted for me in the Minted for Art's sake competition (see my last blogpost). It was totally amazing, I won! My "Cloud Symphony, Ring of Kerry" came 5th place in the top 20 winners, out of about 4700 submissions. And to even top that I won 4 more editor picks as well! Honestly I am still shaking my head in disbelieve as I write this … :-)
Here's the winning painting:
And these are all my works that got picked. All of these will be licensed and included into the Minted collection of wallart, for sale soon!
And as I was just preparing the pictures for this blogpost, I got some more fab news! This time about the Fabric 8 contest by Moda Fabrics and Spoonflower with the theme of "Botanical sketchbook". The semifinalists have just been announced and I am in!!! Very happy :-) Here's my design , my "Rooftop Garden Book " which is b ased on a real sketchbook that I did when we started to plant our garden on the roof. Lots love and good memories in this one!
And here's a peek into the garden book that was the starting point for my pattern:
I am really having a bit of competition frenzy at the moment (more to come …) but ok, there were just so many fab comps around at the moment!
And now for some shameless vote asking: PLEASE vote for my design if you like it, I would LOVE to get into the finals! The lucky winner of this competition will will be offered a contract to design a fabric collection for Moda Fabrics plus advance against royalties, and a Wacom tablet. Who wouldn't love to win that!?
You can vote here http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/317 until September 2, 2015. Thank you so much! Would be fab if I could share some more happy news with you soon …
