This week, you're challenged to create a design inspired by a favorite childhood activity: coloring books! We’ve partnered with Lake, an interactive coloring app. The winners will be included in a special black and white Spoonflower coloring pack in the Lake coloring app. Create a design in black (#000000) on a white (#ffffff) background.


Overview

In the midst of holiday making, hosting dinner parties and baking cookies to the point of losing track of how many dozen you’ve made, it’s easy to see why this time of the year can fly by. Escape the busyness of the holidays, even if just for a few hours, with the November design challenge. Whether it’s limited color palettes or larger than life designs, your hardest challenge this month will be remembering to get back to your to-do list!

Prizes

  • 1 first place winner, chosen from the top 25 by Lake, will receive a 1-year Lake app subscription (valued at $39.99) and $200 in Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a 1-year Lake app subscription (valued at $39.99), and a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a 1-year Lake app subscription (valued at $39.99), and a $50 Spoonflower credit.
