I've gotten terrific color printing from Spoonflower so many times and am still amazed when I open something with such fabulous color.............
Look at the color in that print! WOW! Looks great. :)
Printed so very well - the iciness of the snowflakes really comes across in the fabric in this beautiful design.
Thank you Angela!
Looks fabulous printed up!
This printed really great!
Thank you Katarina and Annie! Happy New Year to ya'll.
I love the swirly effect of this design, Joan. Well done.
Beatiful design!!!!Happy Holidays Joan:)))
Thank you Mary!
I like how soft and poofy these snowflakes look!
Thanks so much Patricia!
Also the pillowy three-dimensionality that truly downy flakes have, aah.
Expresses well the way one's attention focusses on the snowflake and zooms in on the details. Also the particular state of cold vortices that for an instant cause them to dance while still preserving their perfect forms.
Thank you Jan!
Oh, these are jewels indeed! Beautiful, Joan!
Beautiful detail! You really get the feel of the snowflakes blowing in the wind!
Joan these are just magical! What a gorgeous design!
Thanks so much Melanie!
Thank you Rhonda! This limited color palette was difficult to translate into the depths I had hoped for. Your description is the look I was trying to capture!
These fragile, frosty crystals adrift on the chilly North Wind look like twinkling gemstones!
I kept working through lots of techniques and it was difficult to get to that point for just which one to use to pull this together, so I do know what you mean Kathleen. Those pines are a good background choice for the snowflakes I think. I always enjoy your pines when I've seen them pop up in the past. That design brings back memories of our big white Christmas two years ago. It is a rare thing to have a White Christmas, since we tend to have measure-able snow in February not December. But when we got up on the 25th that year the pines were heavily draped in layers of white. The weather people had not even predicted snow. We all looked like wide eyed children as we realized we had that rare White Christmas. Your design took me back to that morning. Thanks for the complimentary review too!
This is lovely. I have come up with so many slight variations of my own snowflakes that I'm having trouble choosing one to enter. This is one of the loveliest I have seen.
I can sure relate! Too many irons in the fire for me most days too.
Ooops sorry Joan, how silly of me! Comes of trying to do too many things at once methinks! Good luck in the contest!
Thank you Jennifer! I appreciate that!
I kept showing my husband different versions with variations of effect and he was helpful in telling me when they didn't seem to be what I was shooting for. Eventually it came into range and I decided............this is what I'm going with...............
Ooh, really pretty! The snowflakes look real!
Thank you Michelle!
Beautiful swirls of snowflakes in the wind :)
Thank you Shelley, Su and Julie!
When something is so pretty in real life (like a snowflake)............it feels that much more difficult to convey. Anything hand done (or digitally) just pales in comparison to the real life exquisite, delicate nature of a God's handiwork in a snowflake.
So I really appreciate the comments.
What a gorgeous design and I love the title and concept of the North Wind, blowing these jewels around, and the great dimensionality of the (almost metallic-feeling) flakes.
So delicate and beautiful Joan! Gorgeous.
Thanks so much ya'll! Su must be thinking about you Boo.............You probably meant to say Joan.............
How amazing that it is sweltering in the Land Down Under. Su and I chat about the difference in the weather from this half of the world to the other. We've finally gotten out of the sweltering days and into sweater weather. That is really neat to think they've
almost transported you t o cooler climates.
Beautiful Su! A lovely and expertly executed design with gorgeous texture and movement... It's almost enough to make me feel cool on this stifling Darwin day...
oh my gosh! the lacy texture! The feeling of snowdrift! Beautiful!
Thanks Marta and Angela!
Thank you Emma! It is hard to create a snowflake factory.............. :D
How beautiful! :-)
Thank you! I was trying to convey an icy North Wind............sometimes it is hard to know if others can see what I've had in mind.
Ooh, beautiful! It looks almost pearlescent! I definitley admire the repeat of that complex swirling background, too!
