Front Cover Design Competition!!!!!!

Hello lovelies,

Do you like designing pretty images? Perhaps you're a crafter, illustrator, photographer? Well if so, this competition is for you!! Issue four of Hundreds and Thousands will be a special "Handmade Christmas" Issue, and we want YOU to design our front cover!!

Sound exciting? To enter, read the details below.

-We are looking for an image only. We will add text and our logo to it later, so writing on your entry!

-The theme is "a handmade Christmas" so let your imagination run wild!

-The image needs to be a rectangular portrait shape, with plenty of space on the sides and the top half fairly empty so we can pop our logo in. (Check out Mezz's wonderful instructions below!!)

-Have a look at our previous covers below for an idea of what we like. We like clear, simple images full of love, pretty and handmade!

-Our favourite entry will become the front cover for our Christmas Issue. The winner will receive a free copy of our Christmas Issue, and a special handmade Christmas present from us! (And exposure to all of our readers/followers.)

-We will share all of your entries on our blog, so even if we don't pick your's for the front page, we will make sure everyone gets to see your hard work!!

-Entries need to be emailed to us (Jpeg or another picture file) by September you have ONE MONTH! GO!!

(remember: we will ad the text and logo, so just supply the image!!)

Good luck lovelies!!!!! Mezz and Taz xx
