Spoonflower

I have never ordered fabric from Spoonflower before. I have ordered free swatches - when they were offered. The had a 50% off sale on their Modern Jersey the beginning of February and I decided to play around with some of my photos and turn them into fabric. I am so happy with how they turned out. I have made my designs available for purchase on Spoonflower. Click this link to visit my shop. You can buy any of these prints on Spoonflower.





This is a photo of a cross section of a Sequoia Tree that had been polished to show the grain lines and features in the wood. This photo won first place in an exhibit a few years back and has always been a favorite of mine. I took this photo at a museum in Houston.


Here is the image mirrored and flipped to create a pattern on the fabric.


This is a photo of one of my favorite minerals - Labradorite. This is a piece in my person collection. I love they way that labradorite looks like a plain grey rock from afar, then as you hold it and turn it, you get these amazing flashes of color. It's so beautiful.


So here it is mirrored and flipped to make a design on fabric.


I love it, but it kind of reminds me of the Eye of Sauron from Lord of the Rings.


This is a photo of a mineral I saw at the Smithsonian. I can't find my edited and cropped version - so this is what it looked like originally.



Here it is mirrored and flipped to make a design on the fabric. I think this one ended up as my favorite.


I just love the color and the pattern that resulted from this one.


This is a photo of a Parrot Wing Rock, I've also seen it called a peacock rock. It is a variety of Jasper. I love the variations in all the colors. This photo is hanging in my bedroom. I really love it.


Here it is mirrored and flipped to make the design on the fabric.


This is a photo I took of the ceiling of the lobby in the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is made of Dale Chihuly glass.


Here is the image mirrored and flipped to create the design on fabric. I so love the way this turned out.
