Abstract state of mind. Turn painting with kids into art.

I am in an abstract state of mind recently (have a look HERE). Explorations of colour and shape, either minimal or full on expressive are timeless and give spaces a modern touch and sets the tone in the right atmosphere. 

Happy Rain drops. 10 cool Rain Drops designs.

As the famous song says 'Rain drops keep falling on my head'.. It is still winter here in Melbourne while the rest of the world keeps talking about summer and posting sun drenched photos of people slouching on the beach. Let me tell you - I'm not a big fan of winter. I don't do cold and grey very well. I look like a puffed wonton going down the street with all those layers. And I especially don't like getting caught up in the rain. It's nice when you're tucked in in bed and rain is just a sound effect, but when I picked up my son the other day I got so soaking wet (not him thank god for prams with rain covers) I was a wonton floating in a noodle soup!

But let's look on the bright side, clouds and rain drops are a source of inspiration. I've gathered here 10 fab rain drop designs that make it better. Stay warm and dry :)

Geometric Art

Today it's all about Geometrics. I am no different then my fellow earthlings and I am totally washed in this trend. Rectangles, triangles, squares, shapes, shapes, shapes. It makes a great touch of colour to a space and it's always relevant. Here are a few designs from my shop:

A little bit about yours truely

Q: Hey who are you, Lady?

A: I am a professional graphic designer and illustrator. You can see my design portfolio here. I also create graphic art and prints under the pseudonym Sara Blue for my shop Sara Blue Creative on Etsy. I was born in Tel Aviv and lived there till the old age of thirty (so please forgive my English if it sings out of key). I then moved to Melbourne with my DH - Big Bear where I graduated with a Masters (oooh how smart am I?). Finally and most importantly I am the mum of Tiny Bear.  

Q: Can you tell me a bit more about Sara Blue Creative?

A: Oh.. only if you insist. Sara Blue Creative is all about creating graphic art that both big and small can enjoy. I find my inspiration everywhere and so can never stop on just one style. You will find my work varies in inspiration from Scandinavian design, Modern Typography, Abstract, Collage work, Mid Century Modern and Pop culture. All in all I just love bursts of colour and positive works of art. On offer are fab prints, posters & art for your home decor, nursery and everyday design cravings.

All designs are created out of love for what I do, with attention to detail and thirst for inspiration. I create items that I would be happy to have around. (and a lot of them DO hang out in our living space and Tiny Bear's room :-)

Q: Why Sara Blue?
A: If you want an answer to this question then you'd better ask Big Bear. After all he gave me this nickname a while back when we just started holding hands.. I like it though so I'm gonna keep it.

Q: What are you doing here?
A: I'm hoping to achieve world peace. I wish. I have more modest aspirations - I'm hoping to share my creative creations, get inspired and hopefully inspire other people. Though don't get me wrong - world peace would be great!

Q: Any favourite things?
A: Pizza and cold cuts and crackers with cheese. Doggies in parks and a walk on the beech. Colours and patterns, friends coming for drinks. These are a few of my favourite things! (..and  you can even sing it - I checked!)

Q: Is that all?
A: Yep, pretty much. But I promise to add more to this list down the road..

Q: What if I wake up at night with more questions?
A: Grab yourself a glass of water, drink it, then go back to bed. Sleep is important (a mum should know!). If you wake up in the morning and still have questions for me, want to say hi, want to pitch some ideas then write me at : hi.sarablue at gmail dot com.

Q: What now then?
A: You can browse this blog, share stuff you like, have a sneak peek at my shop, contact me, throw some ideas at me and see how it rolls - I'm open. Or you can have a glass of beetroot and apple juice...That's what I'm having :-) Cheers!
