A big thank you to Tina Olsen, for coming up with this idea and organising lots of designers (not an easy task!) This is how our Pin hop will work: on Saturday June 15, over 40 surface pattern designers will pin one design each onto a pinterest board, you are then able to click onto the designs you like, which will link you back to that particular designers' blog/website and to more of their designs...ta-dah! A fab new 'hop' idea.
The inspiration for our 'pinned' patterns are derived from 4 different themes provided by the A/W 13-14 trend board by Patternbank. I chose Midnight Garden to inspire me for my patterns...
Ok, well my inspiration began with the 'Midnight Garden' theme, however i admit i did go off on a bit of a tangent which was definitely influenced by Tim Burton, old fairytales, vintage packaging, my nan's doilies, paper cut-outs....i think that covers it! And i also had an overwhelming desire to just draw in lead pencil (something i haven't done in years!) Even though it was pretty time-consuming, i really enjoyed the process!
To head back to our Pinterest board, just click here....http://pinterest.com/fndnewdesigners/pin-hop-june-2013/......or if you would like to 'hop' to the next designer (like a traditional blog hop), please visit the very talented Emma Hawman from Emma Frances Design.
Thanks for taking a peek! ;)
