Got the fabrics!

Super! I got the fabrics samples. And I LOVE IT!


The colors and quality are great. I'm super duper happy ;) You can check all the samples photos on my Facebook page (click here!) and if you want to get some of these fabrics, go and visit my Spoonflower shop (here!).
Happy Tuesday!

Hi there Valentina...

My first post seems to have dissapeared. So, trying again.

Anyway, just wanted to say how lovely your fabrics have turned out. The designs are gorgeous, and I love them. I am very impressed with the print quality. This encourages me to proceed with my own order from Spoonflower. I haven't ordered till now as I am in the UK. But, have been nagged by a few friends to order some.

I may be ordering some of your fabrics myself....they are so dynamic.

Best wishes

p.s. I asked on one of your previous posts what kind of pens you use to do the fill on your canvas illustrations. I too often incorporate ink work in my canvas paintings and use Rotring Isograph pens, and then varnish after using a varnish for oil paints. What about you?

HI Lorrie, thanks for your comment!
Spoonflower is great, you are going to love it!

Regarding my pens, I responded that in this post http://valentinaramos.blogspot.com/2011/05/more-about-process-and-new-print.html
Well, I use Koh I Noor Rapidographs pens with black ink. Sometimes I put some gloss protective finish on my canvas, but not when I paint in watercolor paper.

Hi there Valentina..

Thanks for the reply. I have not heard of Koh I Noor Rapidograph pens, I will look them up. I have been using Rotring for many years now, since I was a student. They are still the best for lightfast and clarity but are not waterproof.

Thanks again hun..

Hi there Valentina. I looked up those Koh I Noor pens, very similar in design to the Rotring pens I use. Almost identical design in fact. :)

Lorrie, I have been using those pens since since I was a student too!
I love love love those pens :)
