This week’s design challenge from Spoonflower had me thinking of what brings on those warm summer vibes—fruit, lush vegetation, and vibrant colors always put me in the mood for a warm summer day (sitting in the shade of course) and enjoy color fruit (or fruity beverage) and watching my kids play in the water. I illustrated some very basic pineapples, dragon fruit, kiwi, and orange, lemon and lime slices hidden among lots of bold tropical leaves.

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.

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.
