New Spring Bags feature ‘Orchid’ – Pantone’s color of the year

I was definitely inspired by Pantone’s choice for Color of the Year, Orchid, which is a blend of mauve-rose-purple-pinks. I knew I had a Vanda Orchid image with these very colors and so, one of the new spring bag designs features an actual Vanda Orchid image, complete with spring greenery in the background.

Since I’m very focused on creating designs and art that incorporate the ancient and powerful Flower of Life, this pattern is also included within the two new spring designs.

I’m testing a new marketing strategy and am limiting the production of the Vanda Orchid and Sensuous Orchid Black Flower of Life designs on Cross-Body Hipster bags to only 200 of each design. This may be a terrific incentive or a total flop, but I won’t know unless I put it out there. Let me know if you have any opinions on this by commenting on this post, by sharing on commenting via the Facebook or other social media links below, or via email to me at debra at debracortese dot com.

Spring Cleaning, Renovations and a new ‘Aloe Greens’ design

Here’s the latest Nature’s Energy Design to match the Aloe Greens header.
The repeat pattern is created from an area of the header image.

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve planned to redesign and organize my webpages. Well, finally realized it is not going to happen all at once, and… it is going to be an ongoing process. So, that said, I’m boldly and/or foolishly going ahead and working on this live and exposed. Comments (constructive criticism please) are welcomed. I’ll be trying out new header images as well as backgrounds and playing with widgets, plugins and learning as I go. What else is new?
