An Oldie But A Goodie! My Entry For This Week's Spoonflower "Pantone Ultra-Steady Wallpaper" Design Challenge!
Okay, I've done it! I've been sitting on my “Downtown” design for a (loooong) while, but I decided to finally add it to my Spoonflower Shop. When I saw the palette of saturated Blues and Greens that we had to use in this week's Spoonflower "Pantone Ultra-Steady Wallpaper" Design Challenge, I immediately thought the colours would really do well with this design, and I think it gives this urban scene a very quiet and still vibe. I still love this design in its original Bright Retro Colours (scroll to the bottom to see), but now I like it in the Ultra-Steady colours too! Public voting for this Challenge opened Thursday May 4 and closes next Tuesday May 9! You can vote at the Voting Page HERE and I'd love your vote for this one!
My "Downtown" design is now available in my Spoonflower Shop not only on Wallpaper, but also on Fabrics and Home Decor too, in Both Colourways and 3 sizes (click the images below to link directly to these designs in my Shop)!
Earlier this year, my "City Lights At Night" artwork was chosen to be part of the City of Victoria "Signage Kiosk Animation" Public Art Project, a project "to celebrate local creatives and enhance everyday artistic encounters". It has just been installed in downtown Victoria, BC on the corner of Douglas and Humboldt Streets, where it will be until January 2022! If you find yourself in Downtown Victoria and happen by, please do take a photo and tag me!

For this week’s Spoonflower “Off the Wall Toile” Design Challenge I thought my “Edo” design would be perfect! And it made me nostalgic for the family trip we took to Japan in 2018...what a different world we live in now.

My submission to this week’s Spoonflower Design Challenge “Bird’s Eye View”! I wanted to make it completely abstract and have a bit of a terrazzo feel. I was imagining a suburban-scape in a warmer climate (thus all the swimming pools!) Check out all the entries and cast your vote at the Voting Page!
Thought I would share one of my latest pattern designs today! This month's theme in The Colour Gang, as I've mentioned in previous posts, is travel inspiration and I chose Japan as my inspiration (since I was fortunate to have visited there last summer!) So here is my "Edo" design named for the name of the ancient Japanese capital where Tokyo now stands. The temples, castles and torii gates are amazing and are part of everyday life all over Japan. I MUST go back! Although I posted them in previous posts, here also are the other two designs in this collection, "Kimono Ladies" and "Cherry Blossoms".
