Another competition: Kid's Wallart … und noch ein Wettbewerb: Kunst für Kinder

Hi! Believe it or not I am back already – now really everything happens at the same time!

Here are my entries for the "A is for Art" competition on Minted. The brief was for personalizable art prints for children. I had lots of fun doing these, based on motifs from some older pattern designs of mine, and I think they worked out well. Hope that you have fun looking at them as well! Please vote for them if you like them! Voting is open until Monday, August 31.

First up there are three prints to give as gifts to the parents of a newborn child:

Please vote for my "Butterfly Wishes" here!

Here's the link to vote for my "Bunny Welcome"…


and this is the link to vote for the "Heart Tree".

And here's three more prints for a boy's room – although I think the pirates would work for a girl as well. As a girl I would have loved to be a pirate princess!

This link leads to the voting for my "Animal Pirates"!

 Please go here to vote for the big "Space Adventure" …

… and if you like this fearless knight go here for voting!


And please don't forget to vote as well for my submission to the Fabric 8 contest "Botanical sketchbook"! My pattern got me into the semifinals :-) and I would LOVE to go on further!
You can vote here until September 2, 2015. 


And I promise I'll come off of this vote asking soon. It is just all these good contests at the same time … 
(One more to come … more about that one next week …)

5 wins and a new contest … 5 Preise und ein neuer Wettbewerb

… and I need your votes again ;-)

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 until September 2, 2015. Thank you so much! Would be fab if I could share some more happy news with you soon …
