Hello! I just submitted this super colourful pattern design which I call "Summer of Love" (stay tuned for more in this collection!) to this week's Spoonflower "Maximalist" Design Challenge! No one was really sure what "maximalist" really meant, but this is my interpretation: lots and lots of crazy-bright coloured florals! If you have a minute, I would love your vote (and again, thanks to all of you who have voted for my designs in the past). Click here to link directly to the voting page!
Here on Vancouver Island which is usually milder than the rest of Canada, we've had an "unusually" long winter. February 2019 was the coldest on record apparently and we actually had lots of snow (I know, I know, it's nothing compared to our Eastern provinces but everything is relative, right?)! But today it is finally feeling like the cold snap is ending. So to celebrate, I am posting one of my newest surface pattern designs. I call it "Luscious" and it features some ripe fruits you probably won't see anywhere because they are a bit fantastical, but it does make me think of Spring!
I just love seeing my designs on beautiful products! Here are some snaps of my newest stationery collection just released from Palphot Marketing! This set features my "Tropicana" Collection. I think that pink, bright green and blue is gorgeous!
The wonderful website theydrawandcook.com has created 6 new design challenges for their "HandPicked" Featured Collections, curated by Guest Curators from various creative businesses.
