You won't need to look far for inspiration so cast your eyes to the fallen leaves outside, your favourite houseplants or even what is on your dinner plate. And of course green inspired prints like the range from The Lovely Other don’t require any green thumbs whatsoever and give that fresh green pop minus the maintenance and responsibility.

Natures Texture

With deborah devaal design

Have you ever taken a close look at a tree trunk and noticed all its colours and textures? Have you ever marvelled at all the amazing leaf shapes and patterns that are just hanging around on the trees around you?

The world is filled with pattern and texture, and it is something that this week’s sponsor, @deborahdevaaldesign is inspired by in creating delightful homewares using her own screen-printed designs. Deborah has no shortage of inspiration around her in the Australian landscape. From banksia and grevillia flowers, to the colours and textures of the land, each designs evoke a feeling of nature that you could simply reach out and touch.

For our next challenge, we want you to take a look around your natural environment and be inspired by the textures it displays. This week is not about taking pictures of pretty landscapes or close-ups of tree trunks, it is about digging in and finding the textures within them, then putting them on display in a styled image. Whatever your chosen texture, we can’t wait to see it collected and styled to create an image that shows natures texture in all it's glory!

Theme: Nature’s Texture

Sponsor: Deborah @deborahdevaaldesign

Prize: Two hand printed linen cushion covers, a handprinted linen tea towel, two small handmade cards

Open: Worldwide

Dates: Monday April 3rd to Sunday April 9th

White Space

with ONE HAPPY LEAF

White space. Some of us love it, some of us use it well and some of us can’t seem to find room for it. That big abyss of space can be scary for some, while others will embrace it. So what is white space?

It isn’t just a big area of blank nothingness for no particular reason. Nor is it always white. It may be a different colour or texture and it may be light or dark. Whatever it is, it is an area that has been left untouched to act as a balance for other items in the image.

Also referred to as negative space, its use can give your image a minimalist look, a classic, refreshing or elegant look. This week, your challenge is to create an image which highlights the use of white space.

See how it can change the tone of your image and how other elements can work better with it. Use any other elements you like; flowers, household items or even your favourite trinkets. Just make sure they are accompanied by loads of that lovely white space.

Theme: White Space

Sponsor: @onehappyleaf

Dates: Monday, January 16 - Sunday, January 22

Prize: One lucky winner will score a Bubble necklace and some ‘olive’ dangle earrings, and one runner-up will win a leaf necklace.
