I just saw this and have to comment. Great palette, great design, love the stencil.
Belated thanks Cal - sorry I didn't see your nice feedback at the time, but it is appreciated. And thanks so much to you too Boo, I'm very touched by that, and it is great to have you back!

Still such a serious fave I had to comment again! Your textural work is quite superb Su, this is one of my absolute favourite Spoonflower designs :)
Wow! That table cloth looks fantastic! It is obviously a very modern elegant design but fits in surprisingly well with the earthy, rustic environment too maybe due to that stamped hand work.

Wow Shirley - so glamorous! Thanks very much for showing it off like this - and I really like the sculptural touch of the goanna too... It's so great seeing it in a volume like this - it just looks like our poor parched land right now...
Took a while but just finished and photographed. Love it!

Thank you so much Sylvie, for your generous comments!
Thanks very much Melanie, so pleased by your comments! I just got a wallpaper sample of this and it looks wonderful on that substrate.
Lovely mix of colours, well balanced design, beautiful work!
Thanks for the lovely comments Diana and Boo - very much appreciated!
Fantastic, Su! I LOVE this!!!
Thanks so much for your wonderful comments Cal and Danae, very much appreciated. It's true that gold is hard to do so that it still looks like gold - but metallic oils sure help! Still, I have had a number of attempts and I think this is my best so far... so thanks again!

This is beautiful!! It's really hard to do gold well without it looking muddy--this captures the brilliance, depth and richness of gold brilliantly!
Love this design - the metallic gold is so beautiful! And of course the texturing is divine. Would love to see this in a machine metal silver/gray as well. Love that it can be read both as gears/machine and as flowers. And the wallpaper.....oh wow!
Showing part of the design only - as this is a very large scale abstract - on the 8" x 8" proofing swatch printed on basic combed cotton (daylight photo).

Hey thanks for the feedback Shirley and Susan! So glad to know it's gorgeous on the CdC and I really want to see what happens to it...
The colors are great, and I cannot believe they would not compliment any skin tone.
Su, I received my two yards of cdc and it's goreous! Can't wait to see that happens to it!
This certainly grows on you. At first I made it a favorite and now I like it better than that. Hmmmm?
Hey thanks for the feedback and interpretations Susan, Tina and Sue Ellen! - I am coming to really love this design (I had such a hard time arranging it and tossed out so many previous attempts that I cam to really hate it at one point). And Barbara - I set it for wallpaper but I never really LOOKED at it - now I have and you're right: thank you all!
Hey, this looks great in wallpaper view, too!
To me, this looks like silk from an old kimono or screen, beautiful to start with, made more beautiful by age.
I also love the yard view and I love the sense of depth created by the slight difference in intensity of the wedges.
This design congers up several story lines for me: hand-stamped West African textiles; art deco flowers; and looking directly down on swirling dervishes performing on a moon-lit terrace. Love the yard view. Cngrats on a masterful piece.
Thanks for that lovely phrase 'A design for contemplation' Deborah - think you've just added some more fuel to the find-a-good-title fire... and thanks for your lovely comment & for seeing the windmills too!
Oh Rhonda!! I love your riffs on abstract designs! You make me see things I never saw, though I have to admit to the windmills (those old Southern Cross beauties that still run in so much of the country & that any bush mechanic can fix). My husband thinks the white wedges look like daisies and suggested 'Golden meadows' as a title (he's thinking of German meadows, not our own drought-ravaged plains!) but it doesn't grab me so I'm mulling over your visions as we speak!
Beautiful, Su. So much depth, texture and shadows! Great design. Oh, and now I see the windmills like Rhonda suggests. A design for contemplation!
My initial impression of this lovely design was of a free-falling tumble of flowers as they drifted down onto a richly textured gold cloth. Then, when I focussed on one single motif, I "saw" the spinning vanes of a windmill. The whole design then morphed into an aerial view of clusters of windmills dotted on the barren land of a drought-stricken landscape! I guess it is all in the mind, you know!
