My Entry For This Week's Spoonflower "Pattern Clash" Design Challenge...My Japanese-Inspired "Kyoto" Design!
This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Pattern Clash". The idea is to combine different types of patterns in one design for maximalist home decor or funky apparel fabric. So here is my brand new "Kyoto" pattern: it's a retro geometric on a checkerboard with florals. Pattern Clash, right?! Currently, it's available in TWO different colourways: Rust Red Blush Gray on Blue Checkerboard and Bright Rainbow Colours on Teal Checkerboard (see below), although I just might have to try this one out in some other colours! I did decide to enter the first version on the advice of many of you, thanks for letting me know your preferences!
Voting for this Challenge opens Thursday May 11 and you can link to the Voting Page HERE. If you would like to see these designs in my Spoonflower Shop, just click on the IMAGES below. Each colourway is available in four sizes: Tiny-, Small-, Medium- and Large-Scale!
Whaaa-aat?! Brown and beige?!? Why not?! Here's my new "Local Colour" floral pattern (1st 2 pics below) that I entered in this week's Spoonflower "Earth Tone Throw Pillows" Design Challenge. I called it this because of some of the research I did using the photos I took at, and the "Flower and Plant Guide" I picked up from, the world-famous Butchart Gardens (a most amazing local garden) on my last visit, and some of the pics I've taken of Summer gardens and hanging baskets in and around Downtown Victoria.
I must admit I wasn't at first really enthusiastic about this palette, but I find I really love how rich and warm all the entries look! I surprise myself! So I did try out a few other new designs in this colour palette just for the heckuvit (see below)!
AND if you'd like to vote you can link to the VOTING PAGE HERE. But just a heads up...There are 1771 entries! WOW!! Is that the most ever?! Public voting for this challenge ends Tuesday January 31 at 3:00 EST!

This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "1970s Throw Pillows" and here is my entry, "Dreamscape"! OF COURSE I couldn't resist trying out this design in a bunch of other colourways too (see below), but I did end up entering the first Coral Orange version.
Check out all the entries at the Voting Page. Voting ends Tuesday July 26 and winners will be revealed on July 28!
