Surface Pattern Design-Big News!

Good day!  It’s been awhile since I’ve said hello. I’ve been totally immersed trying to create Surface Pattern Designs. 

The Immersion Course with Bonnie Christine is very in-depth. As you know, I’m more of a “big picture” girl who likes to see the big image and figure out the most efficient way to get there. In Adobe Illustrator working with smaller images and putting them all together has been challenging. With all the myriad of tools in Adobe Illustrator I frequently get lost. The program is incredibly deep!  I need waders!!! Haha!

My goal is to create decorative fabrics and wallcovering for interiors. I’ve gotten my toes wet with a fabulous platform called Spoonflower. They are located in NC and produce all their products there. They are a print on demand (POD) company. They specify how to load images and edit depending on the look you’re going for. The few things that I posted on Spoonflower will give you an idea of where I’m going. The process starts with an image of a glass art piece. Then you move on to select from over 30 types of fabric and 6 types of wallcovering. The abstract designs seem to work well when edited with the mirror tool.  The results are an amazing kaleidoscope of color and patterns. Bold and beautiful…perfect for a fabulous powder room wall, kitchen backsplash, tea towels, placemats, napkins, pillows, and fabric by the yard.


I entered my first Spoonflower Design Challenge. There are so many entries it is a lot to go through to find my design.  If you have some time, the entry name is Festive Dance Party.

To vote go to: Party Walls

This is a mock up of the image Festive Dance Party in the Challenge!  Even if you can’t find this in the Challenge there are a lot of fun entries to explore.

Voting Notes:  Designs are randomized each time you load the page. If you’re looking for a specific artist’s work and it doesn’t appear immediately, try refreshing or revisiting later.

To see all designs in my Spoonflower Design Library with ordering options go HERE.

In the midst of this I am really in the Spring gardening mode which I’ve just about completed. I’ve got to do it before my desert garden gets way too hot.

So this is my lifestyle: my love of gardening, making art glass, creating dynamic fabric patterns and sharing all things creative with you!

Hugs to all!
