Whew! Taking a holiday means you really need to take the time on returning to catch up with everything, including the Spoonflower Design Challenges! However, I did manage to enter a design for this week's Spoonflower "The Other Holidays" Design Challenge (that is, any other holiday but Christmas) before I left! Luckily, this Challenge has been open for 2 weeks instead of the customary 1 week due to the American Thanksgiving holidays which gave me a bit more time to design something for the NEXT Challenge.
For "The Other Holidays" I decided on Valentine's Day, but then wanted to take the "other" a bit further so I tried my new "Love Hearts Checkerboard" design out in a very non-traditional retro colour palette! For those who want something "other" than pink or red for Valentine's! I did try it out in a bunch of other colourways though (see below), all now available in several scales. Find them all easily in my "Love Valentine's Day" Collection in my Spoonflower Shop!
Public voting for this Challenge closes tomorrow Tuesday November 28.
It Was Hard To Decide Which Design to Enter in this Week's Spoonflower "Kitsch Valentine" Design Challenge!
This week's Spoonflower Design Challenge is "Kitsch Valentine" and boy, did I have fun with this one! I adapted some of my earlier designs and just ran with the Pink and Red-ness of it all! Here are all the "new" pattern designs I created...Question: Which one do you think I finally entered (see below for Answer)?
BTW: All these designs are now available in my Spoonflower Shop on all kinds of Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in 3 sizes to suit any project! See them all in my "Love Valentine's Day" Collection!
Answer: I entered the last one "With Love in Light Pink"!
I always love how re-vising pattern designs with new on-trend colours really makes such a difference and gives a pattern collection new life! Here is my "Be My Valentine" Collection with gorgeous new soft colours. These designs are available to license! And one week today until Blueprint Show 1 starts in NYC, followed by Surtex on May 20-22! Looking forward to feasting my eyes at both shows! Please join me there if you can!
