TELL ME YOU NEED A CUSHION?

So the last few weeks have been very interesting for me (I do apologise for being so absent)!

I’ve entered two design competitions just to test the waters… get used to setting up artwork to spec and to actually see how well my creations are being received. It’s daunting because the stuff out there is REALLY good. And I mean REALLY.

There is no way on earth I will win any of them but I have bloody loved every second of designing them. The buzz you get when your work is mocked up is insane. The feedback I have received to date has been rather positive! People have ACTUALLY bought my cushions!

Friends sharing the competition on their Facebook walls has been so delightful, as has receiving some lovely emails congratulating me for taking the plunge…

Below are the 3 I have entered for the Homebase and Ohh Deer.

I would love to have your feedback. Or perhaps you would even like to buy one? Be the proud owner of one? They do make for a great stocking filler!! For a limited time only… November 6th!

BUY / SPEND /SPLURGE. Then maybe, just maybe, I will become one step close to becoming a Surface Pattern Designer AKA  dream job.
