Blog #32

I absolutely love getting swatches in the mail. I usually don't blog about just the swatches, but this batch was a little adventure. So I'm giving it a little more attention.

The first swatch here is my Mothers Day Roses fabric. I knew that Spoonflower has trouble printing similar colors side by side, and I thought I had my reds and greens far enough apart. I didn't. They printed out as the same color, but if you hold it up to the light at just the right angle you can see the faintest difference. (Mom and I had a good laugh about it) I have since darkened the outline colors, and hopefully the next swatch will be fine.

The next swatch is the Small Daisies design. It came out darker than I thought it would, but it still looks gorgeous. So I'm pretty excited, and I can't wait to make something from it.

Next on the list is Sunny Chevron III. The colors turned out exactly the way I wanted, but it had a bit of a repeat glitch. I think it's all fixed now, and I'm going to re-proof it and hopefully put it up for sale.

It looks pretty from a distance

On to my absolute favorite: Zombies! This one turned out so well; it makes me so happy inside. I did have to tweak the glint in their eyes. The scaling down had made that detail too small, but now it's fixed so everyone has a twinkle in their eye.

Arrows! This design printed out well; there is a slight bit of detail that got lost on the feathering. I've made that red on red a bigger contrast, and it should print out lovely :D
