Explore the wildlife that inhabits the earth all across the globe be it in the jungle, desert, mountains or plains in this week’s Animals by Land design challenge. Sometimes cute and fuzzy, most often mischievous and untamed, terrestrial creatures will caper across your canvas when you create a repeating design inspired by your land-bound critters.


Overview

Can you believe Spoonflower’s very first design challenge was held almost 8 years ago? The daffodils theme challenged the Spoonflower community for the very first time and holli_zollinger’s daffodils_yellow won the hearts of the community as she took home our very first grand prize. Since then, the weekly prompts have made Thursdays our favorite day of the week (after Saturday, of course!). We can’t wait to see what designs make it into the winners’ circle during our May and June challenges.


If this is your very first challenge, don’t forget to review how to submit an entry before you get started and as always, have fun!

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
