I am an author, photographer and freelance designer. I order proofs of all fabrics posted to my public gallery so as soon as Spoonflower prints the proofs, the design will be up for sale. Thank you for your patience. Thank you for stopping by.

It is made entirely of the five required colors plus white and black with no shading and no transparent colors. To create the green, I alternated single pixels of yellow and blue. Black pixels mixed in with the blue and yellow created a visually darker green. White pixels placed between color pixels created the appearance of lighter shades.

juliamonroe says: Thank you, Mipollito! As soon as I saw the palette, I thought Ha! All three primary colors are represented! Of course I had to try using them in Impressionist or Pointellist style! I had always wanted to try making a painting using tiny bits of color so that the eye sees color that isn't there. This was my first attempt. :) Now that I know how to do it, I may do a real Impressionist style painting in acrylic. Working with pixels is easy to do over and over again on the computer so it was good practice. It will be harder to do a painting with real paint the same way. About the trellis - I didn't think about that until after I had done the flowers. I wanted to add some vine but couldn't figure out where to put it. While working on the vine and ivy photos, I got the idea to overlap them like trellis. They turned out so well that I did a little happy dance when they were done! :D

juliamonroe says: Thank you, Pattysloniger. I'm crazy over hydrangeas so I was really happy with how they turned out. The felt house fabric makes me happy every time I see my tote bag. It brings back wonderful memories of my childhood, working on crafts with my sisters. Funny how people want to touch the tote when I take it places. They think the houses really are felt!

juliamonroe says: Thank you, babysisterrae. It did take a while. I ended up figuring out how to make pattern sets that I could fill in areas. I made over fifty 10x10 or 10x20 pixel patterns that could be copied and pasted or poured or filled in by hand. That made the work efficient although very tedious. Big spaces were easy to fill, small spaces took more time. Fortunately I love tedious, detailed work. :)

juliamonroe says: Weavingmajor, of course I will keep making designs. I am currently working on a series of designs and have other ideas. Because I am so busy, I don't usually have time to work on a contest entry. The Summer Flowers is the first contest that truly intrigued me so I worked long hours in order to complete it in time. Now I can get back to other projects.

weavingmajor says: oh, I do hope getting pulled from the contest doesn't discourage you too much, because I love your work! It was your felt houses I first saw & I still love those a lot... can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve! and I also can't wait to see how this prints! ;o)

stephen_of_spoonflower says: Julia, this is an amazing design. Sorry to have pulled it from the contest, but leaving it in would have required explaining why we left it in to all of the many people whose designs were disqualified for using non-palette colors. I think it would have been difficult for the majority of contest participants and voters to understand how the colors in your design conformed to the contest guidelines. It will be interesting to see how it prints!

juliamonroe says: Most of the flowers, ivy and vines were sketched from photos I took in my garden. The black eyed susans are from my mother's garden.
