Colours Inspired by Another Artist!

My Entry into the Wellies and Galoshes Design Contest on Spoonflower this week. 25/03.2014

I wanted to give you all a sneak preview of what this Collection is going to grow into.
It started with a design I saw on Spoonflower. It's gorgeous and I fell in love with it. So What I did was asked the owner of the design, Joan Mclemore, if I could use the colours in her design.. and she said sure! whoohoo...
So the first one is Joan's design and the rest are mine: 

There are 2 more designs in the works for this collection, but I'm holding them back for now. I have a great reason for this. I'm working on a 3rd that I'll post up soon. Whoohoo what fun!!

What's Happening?

I have a bit of a brag for you :-) I try to enter as many of the Challenge / Contests that Spoonflower has and over the past year I have had some great results and some not so great, but that's par for the course. Anyway the last three contest I entered, Great Barrier Reef, History of Jazz, Geodes and Gemstones, have all been good for me.

My designs have all been voted onto the TOP 50. You might say, hey that's not that good, but consider that there are several thousand designers on Spoonflower and in those there are around 500 who enter the contests. Some regularly and some only occasionally, then you realise that being in the TOP 50 is quite an achievement. :-)
A Little bit of Reef. 37 out of 228. The design on Spoonflower  on Pillows and
laptop skins / covers, tote bags etc on Society 6

All That's Jazz. 37 out of 133. On Fabric on Spoonflower. On Society 6.

Geodes a Sparkling. 41 out of 296. On Fabric on Spoonflower. On Society 6 on all sorts of products.
There are at least 12 different fabric types to be found on Spoonflower as well as Wallpaper and Stick 'n Peel Decals and a really great luxurious quality Gift Wrap in Shiny and Satin.

So that's my Brag, here's hoping I'll have more even better brags in the future :-)
