An abundance of pretty patterns coming up on Saturday

Alrighty, a little more information about whats happening this weekend.  Myself and a big group of other designers have decided to put on a wonderful little event for you all, that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.  We did a bloghop back in January and it was a huge success but with a lot of designers taking part it can become a bit tedious to get through all of the blog posts! I know it took me about 2 hours to read through the whole bloghop (with many cups of tea to keep me going!).

The Pin hop idea was suggested to make the whole experience more enjoyable, so you aren't having to read through 100+ blog posts to see all of the beautiful patterns.  Instead you can see them all on one board via Pinterest (if you don't know what Pinterest is then your missing out, it is a fantastic platform to build your own boards full of inspirations and ideas)

Those at the end of a bloghop would sometimes get missed out altogether, so this is a brilliant way of preventing that from happening, it means all of the designers can get their designs seen.  The Pinhop will go live on Saturday the 15th of June, where you can look at all of our designs on one page, I will post this link and advertise the bloghop on the day!  You can click on any of the designs on the Pinterest board and these will direct you to each designers blog where you can see their full mini collection and find out a little bit about each of them.

We were asked to design to one of Patternbank's Autumn/Winter 2013/2014 themes.  These are:
  • Historical Adornment - Rococo Style, Baroque Imagery, Decorative Work, Ornate Golds and Coppers
  • Urban Metropolis - Urban Landscape, Collage Mix, Graffiti, Mapping, Contour Lines
  • Optical Day - Bauhaus, Optical Mixes, Grid-like Pattern, Chevron and Striped
  • Midnight Garden - Oversized Flowerheads, Glowing Hues, Overlapping Areas, Intense colour on dark backgrounds
The ideas were flowing out of me for each of the themes but one appealed straight away! Here is a sneak peek of one of my designs, can you guess which theme I've chosen?

Keep your eyes peeled on Saturday or follow my Facebook page to be reminded about this!
