You have probably just come over from Anne M Bray's blog Pattern Recognition and taken in her fab patterns. Now it is time for me to reveal my designs which have been created especially for this blog hop. The theme is Tropical Fusion and incorporates the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 - Radiant Orchid.
I have taken my tropical inspiration from the luscious growth of vegetation - flowers, grass, roots, trees, leaves, fruits and seed pods. My original sketches were scanned and digitally elaborated to invent unique motifs to work with.
With the wealth of icons I'd created I then began to put together my main design. I wanted it to be strong and really make the most of the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 - Radiant Orchid to give an important beginning to the collection. With a lot of movement in the design and a bed of dark leaves below… (you know how much I love my feathery leaves) the pattern began to emerge. It has rhythm and style, is rich and detailed, and above all, dark and luxurious. The 'Lush & flourish' collection is completed with complementary designs which all pull together to create a very tropical collection!
