I just haven't had much time for drawing and designing lately, so giving myself the challenge in August to enter four Spoonflower Design Challenges was a little kick I needed. Buuuuuut...I may have thinked out side of the box a bit too much. The theme was climbing vines wallpaper. And I went with red vines. I mean, it would be super cute in a candy shop, right? Plus it gave me a chance to give a little nod Neil Diamond with that title. I consider it a win. Even if I only ranked 470 out of 709. Not enough sweet tooths out there, I guess.
This pattern may be purchased as candy shop wallpaper, fabric, and more at Spoonflower. I have a few other sizes/colors coming soon too.
Another entry for a Spoonflower Design Challenge. The theme this time was around was geared toward thanking essential workers. Ah! Covid is now inserting itself in my fabric designs. I'm trying to incorporate more orange in my drawings, so that was part of my color selection choices. I also chose a weather motif for the stamps as homage to the whole mail carrier being delivering despite rain, sleet, snow, etc. I'd like to take the stamps and postmark elements and run with it for a larger collection. Also, I love mail so much. So you know.
I came in 284th place, by the way. Out of 503! Woot! I don't stand a chance in this competitive world. But it's all fun anyway.
We have (yet another) Spoonflower Design Challenge to thank for Shroom Kaboom! I made it a personal goal to enter one challenge a week for the month of August and fungi was the theme for one of those weeks. I wanted to use more orange (I keep trying!) and kept to a minimal style. I think this fabric would make for great tea towels.
I placed 590 out of 964. Wowee.
You can shop this fabric (and more) at Spoonflower.
