Summertime in Ohio is in full swing (despite the fact that it has not officially started yet date-wise) and beach days are here! I am excited to share a few new designs I have developed for my brand-new Beach Bliss Collection in my Spoonflower Shop. Inspired by the latest contest theme: Sandcastles, my designs were created with hand-drawn elements and soothing, beachy colors. For my sandcastle design, I decided to work with a "kit of parts": various shaped buckets, that combined in different ways, create interesting castles. To decorate my castles, I used shells, pebbles, and other beach finds, as if someone were pulling these together on the beach! For my "Pebbles" coordinates I had beach house décor in mind. I think they would look lovely as curtains or throw pillows! I have some ideas for other coordinates too, so look out for this collection to grow in the future.
