l'art des poulet! = Painted Eggs!

The assignment of the week... Painted Eggs

Spoonflower asked their faithful following of designers to create a fabric design built around the concept of painted eggs.  My take on this assignment centered around the theme of the season... Spring, Easter + new life. For whatever reason, French hens (and chicks) painting eggs on canvas while wearing beret's and French t's just seemed like the right way to go!!

Unlike most of their contests, the preview of this design is 8" x 8" rather than a fat quarter. The deadline for submission was March 19th, 2013. Vote on this at from Thursday, March 21 through Thursday morning, March 28th, 2013!

'Ordinary Girl' Power!

This week's entry... 

In honor of International Women's Day Spoonflower ran a contest with the theme of Girl Power. You were to Create fabrics appealing to kids celebrating the strength, power, and potential of girls.  (Fat quarter size 21" x 18"). Deadline was Tuesday, March 5, 2013.
My take on this International theme was to highlight what any 'Ordinary Girl' is capable of doing. The greatest power our girls have is their ability to change the world! 'Ordinary Girls' can do extraordinary things! Girl Power!!

"Every girl has the power to...  protect endangered species, save our seas, go to school, drink clean water, demand clean air ...have world peace!
