Earth Tone Throw Pillows. Spoonflower gave the designers a limited palette this week. Four colors. I used them all. I don’t know why, but I had it in my head, that it was a neutral challenge. Neutral colors. Subtle. Soft. I had several ideas for subtle patterns. I read the instructions again, and saw the color choices. And I had nothing. 😆

I wasn’t comfortable with the palette. You know me well enough, I don’t often reach for these hues. So I thought it would help to use design elements I am familiar with. This is a new design. We are not allowed to enter the same design twice. (You can see the two designs like this on my Spoonflower widget to the right.)

The collection includes 3 designs and two colorways, each with or without a linen effect.

I prefer the caramel version, but I think the contrast of the dark and light might show better, and that is my entry for this Spoonflower challenge. Voting is now open, until the 31st. I am always grateful for your votes.
There are over 1700 entries this week. Definitely need to grab a cuppa and use it as a short break in the day. 😊 Scroll through slowly, and allow the page to load. Especially if you an using your phone or pad. 🙂

    Sheila, it’s fun to see you working in this palette! Your submitted throw pillow design is just begging me to grab a Lindt 95% dark chocolate bar, and the image at the top of your post is begging me to get out my sewing machine : )

    Very evocative design work!

      Haha, how wonderful, Dotty! Have fun!
      Mmmm. Sorry about that. I was craving dark chocolate the whole time. Haha.
      All I have is milk chocolate Goobers (peanuts). So I had some chocolate pudding instead. Haha.
      It hit the spot. Happy creating to you, Dotty! 🙂

    I like the lighter background too but both are good. It will be interesting to see what others have done with these colours


Thanks for visiting! I hope you'll take a minute and say hello. Always great to hear from you!
