summer floral

Doesn't this look pretty:
This is a snapshot of my fave designs in the latest spoonflower comp.

I have to say, I really did have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this strict colour palette, and churned out many many designs before I reached one I was really happy with.
This is my final design:
I spent quite a while making new brushes in illustrator for the flower heads, and I was really pleased with them. Imagine my frustration then when my laptop battery wigged out and I hadn't saved it. Agh!
Thankfully, I had exported a portion of the design as a jpeg, but I have lost my custom brushes and almost can't bring myself to recreate them (and I'm not sure I could replicate them exactly anyway).
I've ordered a FQ of this and can't wait for it to arrive - it's been too long since I've seen my designs printed onto fabric.

Lesson to me: Save your work as you go along - seems so simple doesn't it.

What a pain about your brushes, why do computers only do that when you haven't saved? Your pattern is lovely I like the balance of colours. And your save the date cards truned out great!
