Otherworldly Botanicals, Spoonflower Challenge

Well, not too otherworldly. The desert was my inspiration. There is a bloom that looks like a striped starfish. It grows in Africa, and has a horrible odor. Which of course attracts bugs. The Starfish Flower Cactus. Haha. Appropriate. Combines my love of the sea, and of the desert. It is more of a succulent than a cactus. The smaller “bloom” in this design was inspired by String of Pearls. With a twist. I love those plants. And yes, I love peas. And I do think they look like they are from a distant planet.

I created a few more blooms, but felt like I needed to keep it sparse. Like the desert. I reworked the background I had used for the roadrunner design. I copied more of the sandy, jagged markings and placed them throughout. I started with more of a caramel background. A very warm sand. But here it looks more orange. Works for fall though! And Mars is reddish orange.😂 Voting is open now thru the 20th.

So grateful for your votes! I know it is a chore. Time for me to vote, and check out the fabulous designers! 😂

Dark Plaid received 36 votes last week. Thanks so much to all who voted! 🙂 This week, the Spoonflower theme is Space Exploration. I kept the design simple, and added textures for more interest. The background has a faux linen effect. For the main elements, there is a gauze overlay. Very minimal and a slightly larger scale that most of the other design entries.

There are lots of bold, colorful, fun entries. Take a peek if you’d like. Voting is open now.

Have a super day!

The sun loved the moon so much
that he died every night
to let her breathe.
