BlogHop - Tropical Fusion!

Hello! and welcome to our Tropical Fusion Bloghop featuring Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. You have probably just visited the intricate and lovely designs of the very talented Lisa Rivas.


Here are my design offerings in the spirit of tropical fusion. My inspiration comes from my travels to the tropics (which has not been nearly often enough). What I remember, walking through the jungle, is the proliferation of vines and how the greens emphasized the color and richness of the flowers! And since I am really craving tropical warmth and color during this gloomy, foggy, rainy time of year that seemed like a good place to start. So I began with a simplified flower vine and bold flowers on green. I wanted very simple shapes and crisp color to showcase the radiant orchid (and my old favorite orange).

I've never heard of a tropical paisley, but I have been doodling a lot of paisley's lately, so I decided to create one! Hope my designs give you a little hit of joy and warmth, especially if you live in the cold northern hemisphere!
