Let's head to the islands!

This week's design challenge at Spoonflower celebrates islands. The best part of any island adventure for me is the unusual vegetation and birds. I don't live on an island but do live in the tropical zone of Florida where I have seen the Roseate Spoonbill, Sandhill Crane, Wood Stork, Great Blue Heron, Snowy Egret and White Ibis right in my own backyard. It still shocks me each time I see them. My husband and I moved here from snowy New Hampshire 15 years ago with our girls and each time I see these amazing birds I get so excited. Below are photo's I've taken, most are from the pond behind my house, with the exception of the flamingo which was taken at Lion Country Safari about 30 minutes from where I live.

This week's contest was to create a flying machine-themed design! I completed a similar assignment for this theme in my Lilla Rogers Make Art That Sells e-course, I used some of the icons from that finished piece and added some new icons to complete this pattern.

Voting will open on Thursday, April 2nd. Vote Here!
