been busy designing fabric.
Something I always wanted to do.
I created some a year or so ago but didn't really know what I was doing.
I had it on my fantasy 'to do' list for this year:
to win a spoonflower contest, or at least get some votes.
All the sudden I had a brilliant idea,
maybe I should actually enter the contest...
I mean it is September and how can you win if you haven't entered?!?
so I made up a fabric and entered and have a few votes already
so ..... SUCCESS!
First I got their new book, which helped me figure out seamless repeats and such....then I made up some floral fabric like the designs in my sketchbook, although I never made it in time to enter that botanical contest of theirs. he fabric I made should arrive soon to show you. Once I started I haven't wanted to stop so I have been creating like crazy.
here's some possible future fabrics...
These are not all the finished photos. some have been half fixed in photoshop but were not done when i grabbed them for this post., On some you can see the paper has been cut in the middle to make the repeat and I still need to fix that seam up in photoshop before i upload it to spoonflower. Can't wait to show you the actual fabric....
You can see how they look repeated at my spoonflower shop by clicking on 'designs not for sale', as you can't sell them until you have proofed them, and you can go vote for my current design in the ditsy lizards contest too. But I plan to enter everyweek or so, so there will be plenty of chances to vote in the future. I will let you know when i think I have a great fabric to vote on,
More to come.
