Hello everyone, I wanted to share a quick design I put together today; letting my creative juices flow to see where they would take me. I took inspiration from my earlier Instagram post of the lovely gold glitter cat shoe in the window of Selfridges. I created the heart and sat it on a green background – green being my favourite colour of course! There are many colour ways I could use to re-create this design, which would make for a great iPhone wallpaper…

A Very Vintage Christmas

I really love 1940s and 1950s vintage Christmas illustrations, I think they capture the spirit of Christmas beautifully. Their whimsical kitsch colours evoke an Americana feel, that transports you right back to the 1940s and 50s era. There is a sense of warmth within the illustrations and you can’t help feeling excited about Christmas.
