My entry for the Spoonflower Retro Floral Curtain Design Challenge. Yes, this looks familiar. I used some of the same blooms from the retro pillow challenge, but changed the palette.
I tried to do a more natural pussy willow design. Twiggy and delicate. But everything I have worked on this week has turned to muck. 😆 What could go wrong, has. With time running out, I decided to recycle.
Even then, more problems. My strokes, outlines, were messy and uneven on about half of the smaller blooms. And unfortunately, I hadn’t noticed until after I had duplicated many times. Uggh. I didn’t know what was wrong, so my fixes weren’t fixing. The only thing to do was to start over. Voila. 🤓
I tried a texture on the background. It looked great, but the seam was showing. For some reason it was not lining up to create a seamless pattern.
Voting for the Retro Floral Curtain Challenge is open for five days. Last week’s Moon Sun design placed 456, (With 29 votes.) of 848 entries. That’s almost the top 50%. 😆 Thanks so much for voting. I really appreciate it. 😻

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!
