One of my fave things to do is wander the nearby coastline and every once in awhile we spot orcas swimming offshore! Such a rare sight! So I thought I would celebrate that in this week's Spoonflower "Favourite Things" Design Challenge with my "Wild West Coast" pattern design featuring orca whales. And then, of course, I felt the need to play with Vintage 1950s Colours...Who said orcas always have to be Black & White?! I did decide to add a more "classic" Black & White version though, as well as a Blue version too (scroll down to see!) And they're all available in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in 3 sizes!
Voting for this Challenge opens Thursday Dec 8 (and closes Tuesday Dec 13). You can check out all the entries at the Voting Page HERE!
How could I not enter this challenge? As a very proud Canadian who lives on the beautiful West Coast on Vancouver Island, I decided to revise one of my very first fave designs inspired by the Salish Sea, the system of coastal waterways that surround where I live and which is home to all kinds of amazing-looking fish, including many varieties of rockfish (such as Quillback and Tiger Rockfish) and flounder. Did you know that baby flounders have eyes on either side of their heads like most other fish, but as they mature one eye migrates to the other side so adult flounder have both eyes on one side? Weird, eh? Check out all the entries at this week's Voting Page!
