New Ocean Inspired Patterns

Kansas is completely land locked and far from the ocean to get inspired for this week’s Spoonflower Design Challenge I had fun flipping through my natural history books and became inspired by the beauty of sea urchins. I created these designs as somewhat abstracted sea urchins and this would make a great pattern for curtains or pillow cases.

When Pigs Fly

My “When Pigs Fly” pattern was going to be my submission last week to the Spoonflower design challenge, but when the peacock inspiration struck me I just made this available in my print on demand shops instead. I love how this could look in a nursery, but I love whimsical quirky things so I could also see me using a phone case or sticker with this art.

More Dinos to Love

We have added two more dinosaur patterns to my print on demand shops: Society6, Redubble, and casetify.

I have this pattern available in 4 color palettes. I loved creating a variety of eggs with different details in flowers, Easter bunny, Cross, and many floral elements of spring.

Scandinavian Inspired

I was inspired by traditional Scandinavian Folk Art, and the colors enhance that. I find that the muted red and blues really match the vibe of the winter season. I added my own twist with fairy tale characters—unicorns, flowers, magic sparkles, a castle—to add more more whimsical style to this design.

Keepsake Ornaments

My pattern this week is truly from the heart. I was inspired by the keepsake ornaments that hang on my Christmas tree each holiday season. My favorite being the velvet deer that I actually took from my parents’ home when they were tossing it out because it has been too warn over the years. I added many different color palettes that fit the mid-century style illustrations of the ornaments and floating tree branches.
