It’s a new Spoonflower Design Challenge! This week’s theme is Paper-Cut Florals. My entry is called Choppy Creeping Phlox:
We have a couple of beds of creeping phlox in our front yard and I just love them! They make a lovely blanket of flowers. In the fall, leaves get caught in the remaining greens of the plants and they are kind of a pain, but for a few weeks in the spring, it is beautiful.
My phlox are not as soft as the real life flowers. I made them very basic and very angular. I created my design with construction paper (and made a petty big mess when all of those little triangles I cut out of the petals ended up on the floor).
While I think there is a certain charm to construction paper, I didn’t think it would translate particularly well to fabric in this instance. I wanted the black to be very black. I traced my construction paper design from a photo in Illustrator using the pen tool.

Until next time,
