bloghop // tropical fusion :: caribbean sea

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the very first bloghop of the year. Just like last year we celebrated Pantone's 2013's color with the Let's Fly! bloghop we wanted to do the same this year to honor 2014's: Radiant Orchid.

a special thanks to Lisa Rivas for the fab logo :)

If you are following the hop in order, it is most probably that you are coming from Rosie Simon's blog and have just admired her gorgeous, bright and fun work. Please now take a couple of minutes to take a look at the designs I've created:

One of the first things that first came to my mind when I read the theme for the hop was fish. Tropical fish are so fun and bright! I knew I wanted them to be the main subject of my designs. I hadn't designed for a while so it was nice to take some time to draw and slowly make one more tiny step towards coming back to my old self by creating something inspired directly by the beautiful and colorful fauna you find under Colombia's oceans.
