A new design called “Warm Paws,” just in time for the chilly weather and Spoonflower’s contest this week which is kittens in mittens themed! I hope you enjoy my design, and stay cozy wherever you are 🙂
This is a new surface pattern design “Forty Winks” that was created for a calligraphy-based pattern themed competition currently being held by Spoonflower and UPPERCASE Magazine. I did all the lettering by hand, first starting with pencil and them scanning in my artwork to then create digitally. I thought it would be fun to create a sleepy themed pattern and use strong graphic words and symbols associated with that. There was also a monochromatic color restriction (black-grey-white) which was another interesting challenge so I had a lot of fun using some different techniques than you might normally see in my work here 🙂
My pattern for the Spoonflower contest this past week was “Ornamentary,” which you can likely guess is ornament-themed 🙂 I went with Christmas, as that is what I associate with the word and there are so many fun shapes! I created more antique feeling ornaments which remind me of Christmases long ago at the family farm.
I present to you “Measuring Time,” my new textile pattern inspired by Spoonflower’s current contest which is timepiece and clock themed. I went with a more antique aesthetic for my timepieces and a retro color scheme. I love how this one turned out!
