We’re pulling up the red velvet curtain and shining the spotlight on your designs this week! Can you overcome stage fright to create a repeating pattern inspired by the actors, dancers, musicians and entertainers who are stepping onto the center stage and into the spotlight? We can’t wait to see which designs get a standing ovation and grab a spot in the winner’s circle.


Overview

December’s design inspiration will test your creativity as we explore a wide range of themes. From four-legged friends to one-of-a-kind tattoos (and everything in between!), there’s bound to be something for every type of artist. Keep reading to find out which themes will pique your interest most (we hope all of them!) during December’s design challenge.
