a study in black + white

tigerprint is hosting a black + white print competition. i knew i wanted to enter because it would be a challenge for me. i love my share of black and white when it comes to clothes, but i am such a fan of bright candy colors in my designs. this stretched me a little bit. i wanted to create simple, geometric, bold designs and i think i did that.

i'm entering another tigerprint competition

you're my only home i just saw that the tigerprint "what is love" competition ends january 13th at midnight, so i thought i'd enter. i went for a 5 mile run in the dark, cold rain last night and both of these ideas came to me on the run...

i whipped them up super-quick while watching a repeat of new girl. i really wanted to use non-traditional valentine's colors.  now my brain is on valentine's overdrive.  i tried to buy the conversation hearts candy today because i want to use them for the valentine's cards that we'll make to send people, but they didn't have them yet....strange.

happy weekend everyone!  doing anything fun?
