Etsy Find: Alice Potter

If you're looking for some original artwork to brighten up your walls, look no further than today's post. The illustrator and designer Alice Potter has some beautiful prints available through her Etsy shop and website. Alice is inspired by the natural world and has lots of pretty birds, animals and flowers in her colourful illustration and print-based work. This 'Secret Deer' print is my absolute fave...

Next up are her popular animal illustrations; the wolves are the most popular, but I'm loving that little red fox down there! There is just so much detail in the prints, and the creative use of colour make the animals so endearing. Who wouldn't love a lilac wolf?
Alice also has a great collection of printed greeting cards which are just far too good to send. They really are like mini works of art. Below are snap-shots of the card with a detail of the print next to it. You really can appreciate how intricate the pattern is when you see them close up. The yellow buttercups in the first photo really get me thinking of summer, so happy and bright.
1. Buttercups greeting card, £2.00
2. Spring greeting card (green), £2.00
3. Spring greeting card (blue), £2.00
4. Murder of Crows greeting card, £2.00

Who would you send one to?
Now I've saved the best 'til last with this next picture. Available as a 8'x11' print , this cheeky blue bear can be yours for just eight British pounds! What a bargain for such an adorable illustration.  
Ah, I'm happy now, seeing that blue polar bears face has really brightened my day. If you take a look at Alice's Etsy shop keep an eye out for the badger print, he's a cutie too! Hope you have a lovely Thursday folks x
