Free Printable Colouring Book - Thanks a Bunch by Kate England


I turned this illustration into a free printable colouring book. I think of this image as Blooms Between, or Thanks a Bunch, and it would be lovely to colour and keep. Just as perfect as giving it away as a birthday card or thank-you note.

A hand holds a bunch of flowers and leaves. There are roses, clematis, and bluebells. A butterfly lands on the tip of a finger. Perhaps the butterfly is a messenger? 

I'd love to see what you create! I hope you have fun making this colouring page your own!

My First Font: Sweet Peas by Kate England

Powered by Creative Market

I've always dreamed of making my own font and this summer when I was on holiday I got the chance to dig into the project. On rainy days and sometimes during the evenings, I'd sit down with a cup of tea, turning my calligraphy handwriting into a font that has multilingual support. The font's name, Sweet Peas Font, is inspired by the garden. 

Sweet Peas Font is a bohemian, modern calligraphy font. A hand written artistic typeface, full of energy and playful elegance. It's a free spirit.

  • The Ebb & Flow of Creativity: I miss my holiday in August when I had the time and space to be creative just for my own sake. Write pages and pages in longhand. Read. Sit on the garden wall and paint. Make a typeface based on my calligraphy. Pick sweet peas, blackberries and Victoria plums in the garden. Walk to the village. Watch The Crown together. Shared meals. Conversations. On holiday with John. I wish I could have stayed longer.
