SKCreations, LLC Surface Design: New Fabric!

I am sooo excited!  My new fabric has arrived!  I had three of my surface designs, In Black and White, Who Spilled the Beans and Stained Glass Mosaic, printed onto linen cotton canvas, and I love the way they turned out.  They will work perfectly for a few upcoming projects that I can't wait to start.  It's so funny to be anxious to put scissors to something that looks so good in one piece, but I'm sure the finished products will please me even more.  Stay tuned!

SKCreations, LLC Surface Design: Fusion 3

In some parts of the world they are celebrating Carnival, a time of celebration, merrymaking and feasts.  The weather is usually accommodating for the outdoor festivities, warm and sunny.  Here on the East Coast of the U.S. however, the current weather inspires thoughts of hibernation instead of celebration.  The temps are in the single digits during the night and early morning, with daytime temps ranging in the teens and twenties.  If that isn't bad enough, the wind has been brutal.  Gusts were as high as 60 mph over the weekend, causing wind chill temps to be in the negative zone.  They've settled down a bit, but whip up periodically to let us know that they're not done yet.  Now they're calling for snow tonight, which is something I never get excited about.  I've started doing my countdown to Spring... 32 days. :-)

While my body is trying to stay warm, my mind is firing up its own celebration, which has led to my Fusion series of surface designs.  It makes me think of the Caribbean, and fun festivities in the sun.  I've made these bold designs available on a variety of items, including cell phone cases, clocks, pillows, rugs and more.  Below is a sample of some of these products featuring my Fusion 3 design.  You'll find these and more in my shop on Society 6.

SKCreations, LLC Surface Design: All About the Heart

February is here, which means that Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  I remember when I was in elementary school and we used to get the packages of those little Valentine's Day cards that were about the size of a Post-It Note.  There were enough in the package to give one to all of the kids in your class, if you wanted to anyway.  If you were lucky, you might even get some of those cute little candy hearts with the sweet sayings printed on them.  Who didn't love those?

Speaking of love, my collection of surface designs titled "LOVE" is all about celebrating the feeling of love that we have for ourselves, for others and for life in general, which is why I have used a variety of fonts and sizes in the design to represent the various ways in which we love.  The products available in the collection include 5" x 7" note cards that are blank inside, which are great for sending a personalized note to someone special.  The cards can be purchased singly or in a set of four.

There's also a custom tote bag that I crafted from a sophisticated linen-cotton canvas fabric on which my design was digitally printed.  The roomy tote is lined with a tightly woven, durable duck cloth in lipstick red, and has two interior slip pockets.  The bag is not only stylish, but functional enough to use everyday.

These products are available in the SKCreations online boutique.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
