Tropical Fusion Blog Hop!



Hi everyone! I expect you are having fun hopping from blog to blog! Hopefully you have just arrived from Sherry London's fabulous post (Digital Repeats) or you maybe one of my regular readers. If you are unsure about all this it's a collaboration between 40 wonderful international designers inspired by Pantone's colour of the year, "Radiant Orchid" with the theme Tropical Fusion (if you want to start from the beginning click on the link to the right!)

This has been a really fun challenge. I love this colour and the designs I have come up with have really banished those January blues as they are so Summery. I have used bold shapes and colours and focused on tropical foliage, leaves and fruit.  As you can see I always start with drawing and my shapes are quite simple. I was really inspired by these leaf shapes and you can see how I developed these below.
 
My resulting collection is called "Heatwave".

I think these designs would work really well in fashion as well as for the home. Below are some mock-ups I created using my designs. They would give a bold splash of colour to any room with the ultra-fashionable "Radiant Orchid" shining through (you are going to see that colour everywhere!)
Now I hope that you will continue to hop onto the amazing Jessica Wilde's blog (Jessica Wilde). Jessica is a freelance surface print designer based in the U.K. who draws her inspiration from her love of photography to capture florals, wildlife and textures. Enjoy!
