I know I'm getting a bit ahead of myself, but I've managed miraculously to get a bit ahead of things here in the studio for next week's Spoonflower "The Skies Above Bedding" Design Challenge! So I've just entered my "Daydream In The Garden" design, it's very dreamy, happy and colourful! The idea was to re-create the feeling of gazing up into the Summer sky while daydreaming in the flower garden!
Public voting for this Challenge opens Thursday July 27 and you can link to the Voting Page HERE!
If you'd like to SHOP this design in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor, it's now available in 3 sizes. Check out the Large-Scale version HERE which I think just might be best for bedding!
For this week's Design Challenge, Spoonflower is partnering again with East Fork Pottery to challenge artists to create designs for Autumn table linens, using only two or more of East Fork's core glaze colours: Amaro, Blue Ridge, Morel, Black Mountain, Eggshell and Panna Cotta (love the colour names, btw)! So here is my entry: "Harvest Veg with Lotsa Dots"! I went for max graphic impact! Public voting opens today Thursday July 20 and I would love your vote for this one! You can link to the Voting Page HERE!

My Entry for Spoonflower's "Monster Mash" Design Challenge: "Monsters And Their Pets" (Mind the Poo!)
These cute Monsters have discovered that pets can sometimes have poopoo accidents! Ah well, they love their pets anyway! I entered my "Monsters and Their Pets" design in Spoonflower's "Monster Mash" Design Challenge! You can now purchase this design in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor!
AND how could I resist?! This design is also now available on Graphic Tees, Wall Art, Totes and more in my TeePublic Shop AND on Lots of Other Products in my Redbubble Shop too!
DESIGN NOTE: For some reason (not sure why, really), I wanted to try out a design using just geometric shapes. So look closely….These guys are composed of just various shapes which I created by "adding" shapes together or "subtracting" shapes from other shapes! I very much enjoyed this process, it was actually quite Zen! And it was very fun discovering how little changes and details can add personality (check out the biceps on the little guy and the pigeon toes on the tall guy!)…I might have to try more of these!
I found it quite difficult to figure out what exactly "French Country" meant when it comes to pattern design (other than toile). I researched quite a bit and what struck me were the use of soft colours, especially blue and white. I hoped my "Thicket" design is French Country, at least in "feel", because I entered the Blue and White on Periwinkle version below in Spoonflower's "French Country Table Linens" Design Challenge (it also comes in the Blue White and Deep Cream version too)! And then I created my "Fanciful" Collection around this theme in Blue & White too! Have a look at the full "Fanciful" Collection on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in my Spoonflower Shop! Each print comes in 3 sizes and there are co-ordinating solids too!
