Designing fabric is fun - but challenging. I love working with various jump off points and then using Photoshop to see where it can lead. I'm experimenting with designs for my next round with Red Rooster (due out at Fall market and shipping Spring 2010). The designs you see here are manipulated from the designs I painted (nearest me). The one that looks solid (right) is not really solid - it is a textured design created from a photo of mud on the door of a truck. The stripe uses portions of all designs except the pebble-like design. My mug is in the photo so you could see the scale of print. No promises whether these will become actual fabric or not, but I'll keep you posted. What types of fabrics do you like? What do you think are the hottest colors these days?
