Tropical Fusion Blog Hop Featuring my Samba Time! Collection

Welcome! You are probably visiting me from Pattern Jots by Maike Thoma. We are both participating in the 2014 Tropical Fusion Blog Hop.


For those of you who are new here, the 2014 Tropical Fusion Blog Hop is a collection of surface and pattern designers who have all completed a specific prompt.  Our assignment was to create a pattern inspired by the theme "tropical fusion" (Brazilian theme) and use the 2014 Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid.  Each participant showcases their design on their blog and links it from the previous person to the next person, so it's one big loop.

My design is inspired by the musicians during Rio's Carnival celebration.  I wanted to use native animals to Brazil and add some other Brazilian elements to the pattern as well.





Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you visit Nina May Design's blog next! If you have only just found our blog hop head on over to Groovity's blog where you can start from the beginning.
