Contest Entry: “Reimagined Damask Wallpaper” Design Challenge

For this most recent “Reimagined Damask Wallpaper” challenge, I may have gone in a different direction than most. My design is meant to be a more modern, pared down version of a traditional damask design. While using a typical diamond layout and flower motif, I spruced up the colors a little and transformed the standardContinue reading “Contest Entry: “Reimagined Damask Wallpaper” Design Challenge”

A Flower A Day Challenge: 30 Day Milestone

I’ve been inspired by a Youtuber named struthless* to draw one subject, in my case a flower, each day for a year. Am putting these into my Passion Planner Daily*, hence the words and dot grid background. Just over a month in so far and I thought it’d be fun to post the first 30Continue reading “A Flower A Day Challenge: 30 Day Milestone”

“Poinsettia Overload in Retro Colors with Texture” is a fun, bold design in non-typical holiday colors. This one reminds me of South Florida, where I lived many years ago.

New for Sale! Summer Love Weathered Starburst Floral

Imagine dining near the beach on the perfect warm summer evening. This design was created with subtle colors and a soft, sand-weathered look for a relaxing, peaceful feel. And it’s multi-directional, too, which makes it an excellent choice for tablecloths, the table runner, and all the coordinating dining decor available at Spoonflower. Here is SummerContinue reading “New for Sale! Summer Love Weathered Starburst Floral”

Challenge Entry: “Mushrooms” design challenge

Departing from the “New for Sale” posts today to show my latest design challenge entry, “the world is a magical place”. For this one, I channeled the mushroom drawing child of my 1970s youth, added a couple cats, quirky butterfly, and fun flowers. It fell flat until the extensive shading was added – quite aContinue reading “Challenge Entry: “Mushrooms” design challenge”

30 Day Design Experiment, 9 of 30

I’ve been wanting to create some shaped pillows for a very long time. These could be for DIY projects and/or items I sell completed via this website or Etsy. A while back, I had almost completed a design with a yard of five mod flower shaped pillows. Yesterday I decided to split each one outContinue reading “30 Day Design Experiment, 9 of 30”

30 Day Design Experiment, 7 of 30

I kept seeing this flower, first shown on my post on June 2nd, as my Spoonflower avatar and it kept calling me to be a design. So here it is, GIANT scale and looking good. Was going to do a textured version, but things got a little complicated and time-consuming, so just the solid versionContinue reading “30 Day Design Experiment, 7 of 30”

30 Day Personal Challenge, 3 of 30

Happy Flower on Pink. Yesterday I finished the version with textured background (with a few tweaks today) and today I’ve added the version on solid pink. I like how the pink in the flower is similar to that of the background. May be playing around more with the colors and textures on this one. First,Continue reading “30 Day Personal Challenge, 3 of 30”
