So I thought I'd combine both a giveaway as well as a survey. Let me know your first and second choice for a background (even more helpful if you can tell me why you chose them) and you'll be entered in a drawing to win a free big magnet from my zazzle shop. http://www.zazzle.com/
So, after getting lots of great feedback on facebook and instagram, I have edited and made some changes to reflect new and improved options.
|the all diamond option|
|and the duo tone (less contrast) and bigger (less busy) chevron|
Also, you may notice (after I have uploaded these everywhere else) that the original soft blue and aqua blue have been switched in the new collage pictures... oh well. Also the teal and the "new" aqua blue next to each other makes me realize they are nearly the same shade of color, just different values. Oh well. The perfectionist in me is squirming, but not enough to go back and fix it EVERYWHERE. I am drawing far too much attention to myself already.
Anyway, thank you for any and all of your input. My brain gets stuck in a rut sometimes and so its nice to have a piece of your mind to shake things up a little. I will probably put up a few different ones on zazzle (including plain backgrounds)...
(edited) CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED Three different backgrounds are up in my zazzle shop. The teal diamond pattern, the duo tone sage green chevron, and a new one a soft blue with white polka dots as backgrounds to this bunny.
The winner of the drawing was my friend Julie Olson who is an amazing illustrator. Check out her blog here.
