I had the amazing opportunity to work with my friend McKenzie, the owner of Dessie + Shea, and have a swimsuit made for my daughter using fabric from my Orca Paradise Collection. The swimsuit turned out amazing and seeing my designs come to life on my own daughter was a dream come true. Here are photos from her waterside photoshoot.
Mini Pretty Pattern Challenge
Calling all design friends!
If you haven’t heard, My friend Diana (@mymcdoodles) and I are hosting a mini design challenge on instagram. May 2-8th we will have a new daily prompt, all with a spring related theme. We invite you to post your “pretty patterns” with the #prettypatternchallenge and we will share your work in stories. It’s such a fun way to build your pattern portfolio, meet new design friends, and get inspired by all the different takes on the same prompt.
I even created this fun color palette for you to use. The color palette is completely optional and you are welcome to add to it or adjust it however you see fit. But for those who like a little help in the color department, it is there for your use.
And thanks to this nifty new website and blog, I can now share the actual procreate palette! Click on the link below to download the palette from google drive.
Now we just hope I linked that correctly. This shiny new website also comes with a learning curve! (Note: When you see the file in google drive it will say “unsupported file type”. This just means that it can’t produce a preview. Just click on the … in the corner and choose “open in” and then select Procreate. It should automatically import the color swatches into your app.)
Also, if you are in need of some tutorials on how to create repeating patterns in procreate, I’ve got you covered there too! Go visit my youtube channel!
Anyway, I’m so excited for next week and sure hope you’ll join us!
I am so excited you have found your way to my little corner on the internet! I am so ready to get this ball rolling and be able to start offering so much fun content! Some things to watch for in the near future…
A Spoonflower shop is in the works! Soon you will be able to purchase my designs on fabric and wallpaper. I will be adding other vendors as well as soon as I get them set up, so watch for that.
Collaborations! I have a super fun collaboration in the works. The adorableness that is coming your way will blow you away. Im so excited, here is a little sneak peek for that!
The other fun thing for watch for is freebies and downloads! Now that I have my own hosting I can offer color palettes, freebies, and more tutorials!
And if you don’t follow me on instagram, be sure to! (Link at the bottom of this page, just click on one of the images to take you there) That’s where all the fun and most up to date content will be.
See you soon!
