Digital Fabrics – Winter Blooms
At the beginning of June 2016, Digital Fabrics announced a new fabric design competition, to be held on Instagram, my favourite social media platform! The theme was Winter Blooms. The prize was $500 worth of custom printing on cotton fabric & an opportunity to sell the winning design in their online shop.
It was exciting to get this opportunity to take part again.
I got thinking & started putting some designs together that really complimented the theme and optional colour palette.
Over the course of a week, the public voted for their favourite Winter Blooms designs.
Based on the public vote, the top 10 were chosen.
The hard task of choosing an overall winner was left to the team at Digital Fabrics.
Everybody’s designs are so beautiful! It must have been such a hard decision to make!
It seemed like forever, but finally the day came when they would announce the winner!
I must have checked my phone about 100 times. I stopped looking at it to do the school run, & when I finally returned home, I checked my Instagram!
And there it was! I had WON! I was in shock! I was so happy! It felt so amazing! I could not stop smiling!
I have a lot of faith in my designs & my skills, & I tried to be really optimistic about being able to win.
But there was still that voice in the back of my head saying… it probably wont be yours! So to actually win is just awesome!
It has given me a much needed confidence boost & most of all makes me feel so proud of my designs & having the courage to put them out there.
Now I have some decisions to make. What designs shall I print? What type of fabric should I choose? What will I make out of it?
It’s so exciting!
