I’ve just entered my new “Retro Rattlers” design in this week’s Spoonflower “Brightly-Colored Reptiles” Design Challenge! This is something a little different for me...OR is it? What do you think, does this design still look like my work? I’m very curious to hear what you think. I am very much liking this graphic “look” and I find my work is always a bit of a tug-of-war between clean, graphic shapes and a more hand-drawn style. Not sure if others see that too?? See it below with a coordinating design I think emulates a closeup view of snakeskin! Check out the Voting Page to see all the colourful entries!
And I've just added this design to Throw Pillows in my New Shop...Check them out!
My abstract “Bird’s Eye View” pattern design was voted 23rd out of 403 entries in last week’s Spoonflower Design Challenge so it is now available on fabric, wallpaper and giftwrap in my Spoonflower Shop, and on home decor products in my Roostery Shop! I really want to thank all of you who took the time to vote! And don’t forget Spoonflower is offering FREE SHIPPING worldwide through June 28!
In celebration of warm, sunny weather I've chosen some of my summery patterns from my Roostery Shop to show you! These gorgeous duvets and pillows are now available...and if you love these designs but don't need a duvet, don't worry, they are available on lots of other home decor products! And of course, there are many, many other designs to choose from!
I decided to enter my "Pink Flamingos" pattern design in this week's Spoonflower "Paint By Numbers" Design Challenge because it reminds me of all those black velvet paintings...remember those? You can link to the Voting Page here to see all the entries!
