I worked on these sprinkle patterns a while back, but hadn't really done anything with them. But, the are festive and sprinkles go well on just about everything. I thought I'd be doing an ice cream series, and started here. As of yet, I haven't done anything else. It's 2020. What do you want from me!?
Update. A friend got in touch about her mother/daughter Halloween costume. They decided to be a Baker and Donut. Seeing as how we are living in a pandemic, they requested masks to wear with their costumes. And I knew just what to do...
Variations on a theme may be a better way to describe these prints rather than a collection. I'm still working on how to put a whole cohesive collection together without just making the same thing over and over. More elements! There are a lot of cassette tapes here. Maybe more research, doodling, and noodling is needed. I do love mix tapes though. I also really enjoy these colors together. The dots, stripes, and grids are lovely and work great as stand-alones. So whatever. This *collection* is a lot of fun. I've already changed my mind.
This one was not for a challenge or anything special. Just for me.
Revising roller skates. I took the basics from part of an older design and reworked it a little and completely pinked up the colors. The roller rink in my town is very old and has a wood floor. Supposedly it floats! Like the building was made to float. Why? Because it's next to a river that has flooded in the past. Now that I'm writing this, it sounds very silly. I may need to check my facts. Wait! New plan! Start making actual money from this and then hire a fact checker to do that for me. Stay tuned. Like for a while.
Anyway, in that roller rink, there are little practice areas off of the main floor. One of them is wavy, so you can skate over little rolling hills. That's what came to mind when I created the flow of the roller skates for this design. Skate Star placed 257/417 in a Spoonflower Design Challenge. I think I formatted it a little too big, so voters couldn't see the whole thing. That, and maybe pink and white roller skates are over done. Who knows. I thought the whole thing was so cute that I made a whole mini-collection around it.
