I took a really big step back in July and entered Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search. Lilla represents numerous talented designers and artists, I have often drooled over her course Make Art That Sells (one day soon). I decided to test myself.
We got the brief early August and with just 2 weeks to complete we had to create Wall Art for any age market, in any medium, and upload it to the website on August 18th. The subject topic was "Little Terrariums".
Yesterday we got to hear about the 50 semi finalists.
I wasn't one of them.
But I'm not sad.
I'm happy that I entered my design.
As I scroll through the 50 entrants, I can see why I haven't been chosen - my style is nowhere near their style and quality. You can see them all here.
I have recognised for a while that I don't have skills in Illustrator, In Design or Photoshop - this means I struggle when it comes to surface pattern design and creating industry professional pitches.
So much so that I realised that I had designed my work too big for the actual submission which had to be 9 x 7 inches, so in effect, I lost the top of my design.
However, I'm chuffed that I submitted.
Working with the idea of Little Terrariums, I wanted to create something that I would have on my wall - a piece that would inspire me to 'Go Within'.
So I drew a female muse, within a little terrarium, on a beaded mala and she was wearing a little terrarium of planet earth, nurtured within the soil.
here she is, the full version
I decided for you to use this muse as your inspiration today, so I'm letting her go play in the colouring-in pages on my website....click here to scoot over there, download her, print her, grab some pencils and let your mind calm and your soul soothe by the meditative colouring. Hashtag on Instagram, Twitter so I can see what you did #colouringinmuse @julesdolly (make sure you let the print dry completely before adding colour otherwise you may find it smudges).
You can download the template here on my Colouring-In Muse page on my website, go and have some fun.
