roses are violet

Here’s one of my latest concepts that involves roses of different shapes and sizes. This might make a neat duvet cover or look nice as pillow shams.  I’d even venture to stretch it over a canvas frame for a pop of color on the wall.  Check Spoonflower in about two weeks if you’re interested in picking up a yard or two.

This is what it could look like as a throw pillow.

Thanks to Mirage Floors for the photo on Flickr.

Capay Valley CSA uses my design

Capay Valley Farm Shop is now using one of my designs as their website background. The final version is a slightly lighter shade and doesn’t have the veggie outlines of what I proposed to them originally, which is below. The green plaid evokes the freshness of the produce, which comes from the farms that participate in the Capay Valley CSA (community supported agriculture) program. It also symbolizes their mission of ” working together to bring fresh local goodness from [the] valley to your table.”

a pattern for valentine’s day

Inspired by some Valentine’s Day cards on print & pattern, I came up with this pattern. The design shows the word “love” in English, French, Spanish, and Persian, er, Finglish. (That’s Farsi written in English.) 😉

my first order from Spoonflower

Yesterday, I received my first order from Spoonflower, a custom fabric printer. Talk about exciting! To see your digital design on a physical piece of fabric — now that’s what I call fun.  🙂

Here are a couple of photos. The first is a design I named “cloudlines” (cat is not part of the design), and the second is “dandelions.” While it may be hard to tell from these pictures, the print quality is excellent. Way to go Spoonflower! I think these textiles might look good as throw pillows and curtains. And if you’re interested, you can now order them here on Spoonflower.
