Today I am really excited because I want to share the fabric design I've been working on the past week. I've submitted it to the Connecting Threads fabric design contest under the name of Squawk!
During couple weeks all the fabric designs are displayed on the Connecting Threads website and everyone can vote for their favorite! Do you like Squawk!? :)
|My first fabric design: Squawk!|
I've wanted to design a fabric collection since some time ago, but I had no idea how to start!
I started getting inspired, and nothing inspires me more than the beautiful California. I had clear I wanted to focus my fabric collection on my personal experience in California. Maybe not focusing too much in the representative icons of California but more in what makes me feel alive of living there.
I visualized an entire collection in my mind and I started drawing. I used to draw years ago and I cannot describe in words how great makes me feel drawing again!
Some weeks ago while reading one of my favorite blogs Freshlemonsquilts I knew about the Connecting Threads fabric design contest. At first I thought it was impossible to have a decent design ready to send but I tried and I did it! I submitted my design the last day that the contest was open but I think the effort is worth! I've had a lot of fun and also I've learned so much…Photoshop!
Hope you like seagulls! I enjoy observing them during my morning visits to the beach. If you like my Squawk! design I will appreciate your vote! The voting period is open from now until September 2, and then 5 finalists will be selected and asked to submit other fabric designs that support the collection in order to determine the winner. To vote just enter on the Connecting Threads fabric design contest! My design is listed in the characters/animals category!
