I've used small dots, and a few large dots, of just a few colors, and black and white, in different combinations, to, hopefully, fool your eyes into seeing many color variations. Why? Because that's the point of pointillism.
The six colors on the left, plus the black and grey*, are as close as I could get to the basic ink colors Spoonflower uses for printing (my program won't allow decimals in LAB). There is one complete set of color combinations on a FQ, plus an additional row of the solid colors on the right
*Note: the grey in the shadow is at full saturation and the background dots are simply less saturated.

Thank you Anniedeb. I should check with Spoonflower, they are probably using different inks with the Version 2.1 colors.

Mesmerizing! I think this has great commercial value and shows you have quite a diverse range.
Merci, Nadja; and thank you, Uzumakijo.
Yay! congrats on top ten Victoria, sorry i'm a bit late here, but i just wanted to say what a great design this is, really vivid and beautifully done. i love the ways it really 'pops' and the way you've made the dots stand out from the background....as others have said, it's also a practical and educational design and one of the few truly pointilist designs in the contest. well done!
trÃ©s graphique !
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Happy dancing here too. Now I need to get in ordered and decide what to make from it.
Big congrats Victoria!! Yahoo!! :)
Congrats on your great top 10 design!
Congratulations on a top 10. A very modern use of pointillism. Those ligher colors just jump of the fabric since their shadows are a darker value than the circles.
congrats on top ten!!
glad to see this in top 10. congrats!
well done ~ yey! xxx
Congratulations on being in the top 10!
Well done :o)
Yay Victoria! Big congrats on your top 10 finish!
yeahhh, congrats !!!!!!! well done ! :D (happy dancing)
Hooray Victoria! Nicely done.
Yay, yAy, YAY! congrats on top ten with this educational and usable fabric, Victoria!
Yay! Congratulations on top 10 Victoria!
Congrats on top ten, Victoria!
Great idea and design!
Thank you so much, Cean.
A wonderfully clever way to stay on "point" with the theme and yet make a completely educational and usable fabric, Victoria!! You never disap-point when it comes to making fun and smart fabrics!
Don't get too crazy, I can't even remember which was the flower. I can find the square, that one is easy. There is also a sun, a large spiral, and small spirals. I not sure which is the sun either. I found the spirals; but I have the advantage of being able to zoom in on my original design. That's seven "pictures"; and I don't even remember if I did a picture on the eighth.
yeahhhh :D now that it's official, I mean that, THAT one was a moustache... I found lot of them... but only moustaches :D I'm creazy with the flowers one :P
this is fun, to have kind of a game hidden in a fabric design :D
Haha; I didn't mean to drive anyone crazy, just to keep myself sane. Thank you for all you lovely comments. Catru, you did indeed spot a mustache.
Very cool design, Victoria1 One of my favorites.
Victoria, your design makes me think of a brand new paintbox .... before the children drowned and scrubbed the pristine colour tablets! This fabric would make up into a great folder or portfolio cover, or maybe a mini backpack to take to Craft Fairs.
I think this is a very original approach of the theme. Congratulations!
:D for being honest, since Victoria said that, me too ... I believe I found the moustache one? (second one in the top, left to right... the grey one...) .... got creazy searching them :D
now I'm finding myself staring at your dots looking for the hidden images.
Thanks Vo! "Attitude", I like that.
Polka dots with attitude! Great concept.
Thank you all so much. Simboko, It's interesting you said that because most of the dots started as a picture of something. It helped me keep them from being too regular, which didn't seem to work as well for having the eye blend the color. I would have thought the opposite would be true. I don't think you can actually see them; but there is a star, a flower, and a face with a handlebar mustache, among other "pictures" in the dots.
Very cool. Reminds me of those color blind tests minus the hidden numbers and letters.
Very nice educational design!
Simple but deep...
With just points of a few colors you created a whole bunch of different tones and shades.
lovely job Victoria, best of luck in the contest xxx
wonderful! not only a wonderful dots fabric, but a teaching one also ;)
Yay - true colour mixing! You've done wonders with a difficult challenge. Best of luck for the comp!!!!!
