I'm influenced by the ocean in my designs. I have a need to draw.. it's crazy but I can only go a few days without drawing and then I get the urge so strongly that I just have to sit down and draw something.... I LIVE

Getting into a yacht and experiencing the rush of adrenalin as it surges forward with only the wind as propulsion, is a kick that can start as young as 7 years old and continue till we're old and doddery.
I must apologise to all of you who were affronted by my use of half tones or gradients in this design. I was unaware that in Spoonflower pallet restricted designs the print should be flat. ~~~~~
This was the first method of getting around the world, exploring and discovering new lands to invade and conquer. There's no doubt about it, you get a great 'rush' when sailing.
I can make the design repeat smaller if required. Please just send me a message using the message box on my main home page.
This design uses the colors from Spoonflower's palette-limited Sailing contest. More coordinates can be found here.

The Centre of all things, the light house, keeping us from danger! :^D ~ Sylvie
Tall ships, as they are known today, still sail around giving people first hand experience of what it was like back in the day. :^D ~ Sylvie
Big Cats racing off the coast of San Francisco in the America's Cup! :^D ~ Sylvie
The big friendly moon lighting the way for a sailor who's late in getting home. Off the Mozambique coast and the Venezuelen Coast, they sail in tiny boats to go fishing, no navigation lights or equipment. You gotta watch out you don't hit them. :^D ~ Sylvie
Racing was something I did from the age of 8.. now, I just cruise :^D ~ Sylvie
Dolphin come and play with the bows of the boat. they love to show off and jump. :^D ~ Sylvie
The Cruising yacht sailing around the world. Note the birds in the background. This is a macro shot not a print sample...yet :^D ~ Sylvie

Your illustrations are wonderful Sylvie! I love the way the light from the lighthouse goes through the entire design across the yard view. Very clever!
Lori, Thank you! That you like my design is a great compliment. I really appreciate it. There is a story behind each 'postcard' but you'd have to read my blog to know them. :-) If anyone's interested the blog is www.sylviesdesigns.blogspot.com.

Really cool design, Silvie! they remind me of postacards! :)
Great design, Sylvie! I love the beams of light from the lighthouse and the stripes from each piece. It gives it a neat 3d effect. It's really cool! -Tara
Thank you so much Rhonda! It's really good of you to call this design a work of art!! Wow. :-) Thanks again. :^D ~ Sylvie
Sylvie, your enjoyment of sailing is embedded in the magnificent illustrations of your captivating design! I love how you have used the beams of light from the lighthouse to link all of these images into a cohesive work of art!

Thank you Pixeldust!
Thanks Sheila! ooohhh shower curtains.. yeah that'd be great :-) And sheets in a boy's room... what a great idea. Thanks! :^D ~ Sylvie
Sylvie I was really looking forward to seeing what your entry would be this week.. your design is great. I love the lighthouse beams, your reflections on the water, the red and yellow in the sky. Each scene is terrific. I think they would be great individually, and larger on pillows. On sheets or a shower curtain, upholstery. ( just noticed the buoy)
Thank you Amy! I'm happy you like it. :^D ~ Sylvie
Ooh, what a lovely design!!!! Love how it is arranged; the beams of light from the lighthouse are uber-cool!
