Plum Blossoms Surface Pattern Design | Annie C Designs

Plum Blossoms

As soon as I got into the groove of Spoonflower’s weekly design contests, they changed to monthly contests. The theme of April’s challenge is “Japanese Garden.” The theme goes along with a new kimono design on Sprout patterns.

I did a little research on Japanese flowers and settled on the plum blossom. It is similar to a cherry blossom, but there are some differences (this article identifies some of those differences, if you are interested).

I set to work creating my geometric flowers and set them against a sky blue background. Here’s my final design:

You can see all of the Japanese Garden challenge entries, and vote for your favorites, here.

For fabric, gift wrap, and wallpaper, visit my Spoonflower shop.

The point of the challenge is the kimono pattern (which you can see here), but I really like this fabric on that dress above from Sprout Patterns.

Furniture, kitchen linens, and pillows can be found in my Roostery shop.

For tote bags, pouches, throws, and more, visit my Society6 shop.

Journals, finished clothing, phone cases, and such are available in my RedBubble shop.

Until next time,
Annie
