This Week's Spoonflower Design Challenge: "Vintage Sportswear"! With Thanks to Make It In Design And Their "Creative Tips" Too!
I must say this week's Spoonflower "Vintage Sportswear" Design Challenge was a tough one! I mean, what do you think of when you think of 70s, 80s or 90s sportswear?! After trying and tossing a bunch of ideas, I ended up with my "Anemone" retro floral in bright 1970s colours (first pic)! I can see a pretty cool fleece jacket or ski suit in this (what do you think, my Nelson, BC ski buddies?) Public voting is open now and you can link to the Voting Page HERE!
I also want to thank the team at Make It In Design whose "Creative Tip Of The Week" posted on their Blog on August 25 about how to use Adobe Illustrator's Blend Tool inspired me to try something new!

Here is my entry for the Spoonflower "Monochromatic Duvet Covers" Design Challenge, called "Abloom"! All the colours are shades and tints of the gorgeous Scarlet Red in the background, as required by the Challenge. It's now available in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in several scales from Small to Jumbo. AND of course, I had to try it out in a bunch of Other Colours too (if you look closely, some of them aren't strictly "monochromatic" as I felt the need to add in bits of other colours here and there!).

Public voting for this Challenge is now closed...Whoops, I forgot to post this LAST week! But you can vote in THIS week's "Vintage Sportswear" Design Challenge at the Voting Page here!
And now for MORE colours...In order: Mustard Yellow, Barbie Pink, Sky Blue and Cobalt Royal Blue! All colours are now available in my Spoonflower Shop!
So I must admit, I'm kinda in LOVE with Barbie colours right now! Pink, Blue, Purple...I guess that's no surprise! So, I named my new floral pattern design "Dream House" (get it?!) and entered it in this week's Spoonflower "Tween Spirit Bedding" Design Challenge! What tween (or teen or full-grown adult or elder) wouldn't like this (um, don't answer that)?!
This gorgeous floral is now available in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in 3 sizes and a bunch of colourways. Click the IMAGES below to link directly to the Large-Scale versions in my Spoonflower Shop (but don't forget, they also come in a Small- and Medium-Scale version too if you prefer that!)

This Week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Pantone Mega Matter Bedding"! I've Entered My "Pinwheel" Design!
PHEW! I just returned from my vacation last weekend and had decided I wouldn't be able to enter a design in this week's limited colour palette "Pantone Meta Matter Bedding" Design Challenge (how many emails did I have?!) because entries closed on Tuesday August 8, but then I remembered my "Pinwheel" design that has been in my archive for awhile. I've always wanted to add it to my Spoonflower Shop but never quite got there. So this week's challenge gave me a good excuse to revise and recolour it. It did end up taking a full day to finish (as these things do), but I did manage to enter it on time! Public voting for this Challenge closes on Tuesday August 15! You can link to the Voting Page HERE!
If you'd like to see this design in my Spoonflower Shop, just click the IMAGES below! Note this design is available in a Small-, Medium- and Large-Scale version; the images will link to the Large-Scale version in my Spoonflower Shop!

Public voting closes tomorrow August 8 (sorry for the late notice, I've been on vaca)! You can check out all the entries at the Voting Page HERE.

Answer to my question: Barbie (of course)!
