We are excited to announce the winners of our Glorious Spring Face Painting Competition!
This has been an incredible competition with over 130 designs entered, thank you so much to everyone who has taken part. The gallery of designs is packed full of amazing designs to inspire you over the Spring season. We would like to thank our fabulous judge Shawna Del Real who has had the really hard job of choosing the winners. This is what she had to say:
I have been looking at these everyday and couldn't cut my list down any shorter than 9!! There were so many amazing entries. Spring is my favorite season so when I scroll through looking at the images some just really stood out to me.
The one that I could not get past and stopped me in my tracks over and over again was from Ksenia Hermal. The layering of the flowers is perfect. The color contrast is unexpected and beautiful and the shape is ultra feminine. Everything about this mask is stunning. I just want to look at it all day. She is my pick for 1st place.
My second place winner is by Olga Meleca. This portrait of two sweet birds is just that. Incredibly sweet and beautiful. I especially love the sunrise in the background and the color choice for the birds.
My 3rd place is Lorna Blake. The colors in this just evoke the essence of spring. It makes me happy every time I look at it.
