Hello all. Steph here. Just wanted to share a little something with you before I leave for work! A lot of my friends used to have this poster hanging on their walls (you may well recognise it):

I used to feel a bit envious whenever I saw this poster in a friend's room, and wished that I could have it too! But I could never quite put my finger on why I liked it. I'm not really that enamoured by the colours and, whilst I do love cats, this one looks a bit scary. So for ages, my love for this poster went rather unexplained. Until now. Until I started with the Creative Type. It's the font!! Look how cool it is. Very old looking, very French. I love it! I don't know why I didn't realise that before! But it's not very intricate, so you could easily draw similar type yourself. I might try it!

Have a wonderful day :)

Steph x
