Banner entries for Bloesem’s Gift Guide 2011

 { Image above banner design: illustration by Phoebe Carpenter Eels}

A bit later today I will share with you the first category of the Bloesem Gift Guide 2011. But let me start with showing you the banner designs that were submitted to my call two weeks ago. It was difficult for me to choose which banner I liked best, you need to scroll down in this post to found out who the winner is… what would have been your choice?

A BIG thank you to all who took the time and create something special for Bloesem!

    That design actually caught my eye immediately… before I understood what the post was about. Some beautiful work showcased… but this one will translate well in so many formats. Thanks for sharing the process! Claudine
