A new print

I've had this print on the back-burner for a while, it would simmer for a while in the back of my mind, then I'd get busy and forget about it. But I managed to finish it yesterday and put it up on my shop last night.

It's funny how sometimes the simplest designs are the ones that keep you stumped. 

I guess because the design has to speak for itself when it's simpler. You have to make sure the tracking, kerning, leading, and over all balance works - there's a little graphic design tutorial for you if want to click the links :)

Boy version in primary colours - print measures 11 x 14"

Girl version - I love this colour combo :)

What do you think? I think it would really brighten up any child's room or playroom and with Will now learning his letters and numbers I think I'll have to add it to his room. He can count to 11 now! I'm so proud!

Have a great day everyone,


  1. It's great! Would be the perfect addition to any nursery/little one's room. Will have to keep it in mind when I get my act together with our nursery :) Give Will a big kiss for being so clever from me x
