Dream Away on Sunny Days

Today I wanted to show my new design “Dream Away on Sunny Days”. By now I have three different versions: the first one I made a few weeks ago for Lilla Rogers’ MATS course as a 12 x 12″ scrap booking sheet. For the second version, I made some additions to fit it on an 8.5 x 11″ sheet that could double as an art print (with the bottom labels separated) and as scrap booking pieces. The third version I made for Spoonflower’s “flying machines” contest, for which I removed all lettering but “Dream Away” and made sure no panel looks as if designed to be written in; I added flowers and other little icons for this purpose. The title was inspired by a song by the amazing F.R. David’s song “Dream Away” – the music and his voice sound so airy and carefree, which in my mind matched my drawings so well. :)

I can’t share a fabric image this week, since I only made #13 in the contest (which is only fair, with my constant luck!). But I have this inkjet print out that I think is just as good.

This week’s results of the Spoonflower ‘South West’ contest took an unexpected turn when the winning design got removed and replaced with a different one. While copyright issues were the suspected cause elsewhere on the web, I will not speculate here and would rather congratulate Grace Design for being picked by Carousel Designs’ baby bedding line with her lovely dreamcatcher design.

I’m grateful to have made it to #3, which means I will receive a pillow printed with my design. Thank you so much to anyone voting for my Mojave desert. This is Spoonflower’s fabric image:

This design is now available on various types of fabric, two types of gift wrap and two types of wallpaper.
