Make...Create...Smile...Do...Care...Dream...All things I plan to do more of in 2021! This is my entry for this week's Spoonflower "Packaging Design" Challenge (and it's the last one of 2020)! Spoonflower has asked its designers to come up with a design that reflects the values that mean the most to the Spoonflower community: family, uniqueness, self-expression and creativity. The winning design will be featured on its packaging in 2021. Very fun! You can vote at the Voting Page until Jan 5 2021 at 3:00 EST here: Happy New Year everyone...What words will you try to live by in 2021?!
My "Christmas Cheer" Background Pack is now live in the photo-collage app PicCollage, and available for you to make festive photo collages to send to all your family and friends. I'm not sure what is happening where you are but sadly it looks like where I live we won't be able to celebrate the holidays in person except with people from our own households. Maybe making a cheery collage with photos from this crazy year might be a creative way to connect. See below for the 12 pattern designs that come in my Christmas Cheer Background Pack! Hope you're managing to stay cheer-y and I wish you Happy Holidays. Here's to a Healthy 2021!
A bit late posting about this, but last weekend Dec 5 2020, Janine of Uppercase Magazine featured my "Elemental Series" in its ALL ABOUT YOU Newsletter which is delivered to subscribers every weekend! In the feature, I talk a bit about how the Series came about and the ideas behind it. Thanks for the feature, Janine!
Some of the ideas I've been playing with for a new collection I've been working on recently: unique colour combos, mix & match patchwork and pure abstraction and geometry! Although I'm working on another project (more about that soon!) that includes this new "Capri" pattern design, I thought it would also be perfect to enter in this week's Spoonflower "Create Room" Design Challenge which says: "The pattern you create should not only provide visual joy, but should inspire both you and others to create more", to use as a wallpaper backdrop in a DreamBox, an all-in-one craft room that folds away into a beautiful armoire, designed by Create Room. What do you think, does this design fit the challenge? In any event, I think it makes for a pretty cool bathroom! Check out the Voting Page!
