Happy Summer, Friends! What's New?

Hello Beautiful Friends!
Carlsbad Seawall, Carlsbad, CA by Lopez

Carlsbad Seawall, Carlsbad, California


It's been awhile since I have updated you on the happenings. Sorry about that! Life comes at you fast and in waves sometimes. I am sure you can relate. 

Since we last met, my #1 Grandbubble graduated from High School 😢 I'm not crying, you're crying...It's not that I cannot believe how fast time flies, but I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! So much good stuff ahead for her. 

I have squeezed in time to update my shops and stores and even to paint, just for fun! If you are with me on Instagram, you may have seen my #SketchbookGirls series. I am challenging myself to practice faces and figures, but with my usual expressive twist. I'd love to hear your comments on the ladies. Which one is your favorite?

These illustrations are actually really fun, using mixed media and trying new things. Summer, after all is a time for exploring!

Here are a few of the latest products and design offerings I have created since last we met:

Well, back to the easel. There is more fun to be had and more designs to finish as we approach Back To School. Yikes. I said it. 

I'd love to know how your Summer has been so far. What has been the highlight? Please leave a comment and give me all the details!

Have a Wonderful, Safe and Happy Summer!

Peace, Love, and Creativity,

My Designs Roaming Free!

Hello Beautiful Friends!

Just got back from an awe inspiring journey to India. The people are so colorful, the food is spicy and the architecture sings in gemstones! We just happened to be there for Holi - the all community celebration of color and JOY! A great creative refuel, to be sure.

I returned home to find message from some creatives who have used my fabric and wallpaper designs for various projects. I thought it would be fun to share with you.

My new friend Darlene sent these image of her new valances, skillfully created by Rose Morgan of NC. She used my Autumn Sunnies on Brick Red to complement her warm kitchen wall color. 

Next, Carmen of 'Auntie Carms Creeations' on Facebook designed these Ribbon Skirts using my Valentine Confetti & Hearts on Black fabric. She even created some cute coasters with the left over fabric!

Finally, Audry T. chose my Jubilant Wallpaper to add some Springtime to her TV room. Adding self-adhesive wallpaper from my Raspberry Creek Fabrics Shop to the built-ins was an easy and affordable way to update this space!

Enjoy your Spring, friends. And please keep those project images coming! I love to see what you create with my designs.

Peace, Love, and Creativity,

Happy St. Patrick's Day to All!

I hope you are enjoying the last few days of Winter. 

I am here dreaming of my favorite season, SPRING! Not just for the beautiful flowers that offer so much painting inspiration, but also for BASEBALL SEASON! Don't you just love baseball? I have high hopes, as always for my Padres. Who is your team?

So, if you shop Etsy and can't find the design you want, please head over to my website, where ALL my best designs reside. 

Here is a sneak peek at some of the newest scarf offerings:

New Fabric and Wallpaper Featuring Pantone's 2024 Color of the Year!

Hello Beautiful Friends!

Have you heard? Pantone's Color of the Year for 2024 is Peach Fuzz. 

I wasn't really sure what to do with this muted color palette, but thanks to Spoonflower, I was prompted to create something in order to join the latest design challenge. Pantone partnered with Spoonflower for this challenge. You can read more about it here

Once I started sketching, the ideas began to flow. I love it when that happens! I did enter the challenge with this design:

Peachy Garden Wonderland by JLopezArt
Peachy Garden Wonderland Fabric

Peachy Garden Wonderland Pillow by JLopezArt
Peachy Garden Wonderland Pillow

I've since designed more, the collection growing to 12+ designs! It incorporates the Peach Plethora color palette that Pantone provided to coordinate with Peach Fuzz. Moment of honesty here: I like the Plethora colors more than Peach Fuzz. But I now have several coordinates to help you create magic with your quilt, craft, or sewing projects!

Today is the last day of the challenge, so my Peachy Garden Wonderland design will be available soon on Spoonflower. If you missed voting, I am entered in the next round,  where the challenge is "Welcoming Walls". You can Vote Now for my design, Winter Bliss Watercolor Floral. Lots of really pretty wallpaper entries! Vote on as many as you like.

Finally, the Good News! My Peachy Garden Wonderland Collection is already available in my Raspberry Creek Fabrics Shop on Fabric and Wallpaper. There are many coordinating designs in the collection!

So, if you're in the mood for something peach-fuzzy, head on over to both Spoonflower and Raspberry Creek Fabrics to find a whole lotta peachy designs right now. 

Peace, Love, and Creativity, Jodi
