A shiny new design – how exciting! It’s quite different for me as well, I’ve gone wild with colour which is a new experience. It’s inspired by sunny days and bicycles. There’s actually a Spoonflower contest coming up and the theme is ‘cycling’ so that’s a good motivator for adding some bicycles into a design.
I played about with a bunch of colours on Coolors until I settled on this:
It doesn’t look so good like that… but I figured with a white (or black) background it would be ok, I can always change them later anyway (I have an urge to include a lavender type colour in there 🙂 and maybe tweak that green…).
I created the whole thing on Paintstorm, I had two documents open, in one I created each different design element – in a different layer. I then copied and pasted these into another document where I played around with the layout.
After about a whole day (no, really) I was happy with layout! For now I’ve decided to settle on the colours, maybe I’ll come back to it in a few days with a fresh head and try it with a few different colours but I do really like it as it is (and so does my boyfriend 😍).
I couldn’t help trying it out on a bunch of different mock ups (I always find this part really exciting).
What do you think? Do you reckon it’s contest worthy yet or shall I try out a few other colours first? Orrrrr maybe even turn it into a chalkboard style design? The possibilities are endless! The design contest closes on the 1st May so I have a little while to try things out… watch this space 🙂
Ps. If you have a Spoonflower account – you can ‘like’ my design here (hint hint). I still consider myself a bit of a newbie and still get really excited when people like my stuff 😆😁😂
Until next time ❤️
