THE TROPICAL FUSION BLOG HOP!

Hello, I’m Tina of FYLLAYTA and this is my take on the tropical fusion theme from the blog hop earlier this year. I concentrated on whats happening below the surface of the tropical sea!

The theme we follow is the Pantone color of the year 2014, radiant orchid! Click to read more.

So, here we go, let’s start with my placed print, maybe for a scarf, or a beach wrap/sarong?

BALLOONS

Last year I participated in the “LET’S FLY” bloghop, we had such great feedback that we decided to keep the links up for some time!

As I had decided to do a lot of handprinted surfaces for this theme,  I picked  hot air balloons as my version of flying. The shape of the balloon makes a nice and easy template to work with!  In Stockholm you see them often in the summer. ( At the green cross I used to have my shop/Studio, once upon a time!)

After some sketching, I cut out shapes for the details  and background and started putting paint on paper. Later I worked it all together  in photoshop.sketch

The final patterns I think would give a fresh and joyful feeling to bedding, so that is the theme for this balloon print!with-front-balloon
