Creative Mondays 57 – Creative Holiday Landscape

Creative Holiday Landscape

“What is Creative Mondays?

Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.

So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”

A quick post today as I’m currently sitting in my parents front room in Sicily enjoying the “not so frosty” weather and about ready for some family board games to begin! This is another in what I’m calling my Creative Landscapes and this time with a slight Christmas Holiday theme! Perhaps inspired by Sicily’s famous Mount Etna, the CreativeJUUS spiral sits atop the mountain almost like a cherry on a wonderful dessert!

I want to wish everyone a very happy holiday and a fantastic new year! Look forward to more creativity in 2013!

The FWA or (Favourite Website Awards) has been showcasing Flash Website design for over 10 years and was one of the original inspiration sites that I would go to whilst studying at university. Although much has been said recently about the state of Flash and it’s unknown future, there’s clearly an immense amount of talented work going on with the platform.

One aspect of the FWA site that always catches my eye is their wallpaper section. Artists are encouraged to create a wallpaper in any style of their choosing using the FWA logo in some shape or form. With it being so close to Christmas I choose a winter theme for my wallpaper. I’ve submitted it to the site but even if it doesn’t make it up I’d like to be able to share it as something I’ve been working on over the holiday period! Happy Holidays!

3 Free iPad/iPhone Wallpaper Designs.

When I started this site one of my goals was to be able to create content that I could share with the online community and ever since I got my iPad I’ve been meaning to post a few quick wallpaper designs. So it only seems right that I share my first few attempts. I’m sure these styles are quite common but I want to start with the basics and work my way up. I also thought I’d add the wallpapers in iPhone resolution so feel free to use them but the designs really lend themselves to the nice big iPad screen.
