The Bold Art Floral Challenge

The bold art floral week three. The surface pattern marketplace now sends out a weekly design challenge to all creative designers, and illustrators that have joined their marketplace. By offering a weekly design challenge, it is a great way to show the designers new trend forecasts and to really test their creativity and skills. By accepting the challenge they then have to create one or two designs in their hand, giving their own interpretation.
