Tropical Fusion Blog Hop….Have a visit

©2014 Velásquez
Hello and welcome to the Tropical Fusion BlogHop.
Over 40 designers are designing within a tropical theme and are incorporating Radiant Orchid, the 2014 Pantone color of the year in their mini collection. 
The hop will run for 4 days.


You are probably stopping in from Jolene Heckman's lovely blog.
 If you want to start at the beginning of the hop please visit Mary Tanana's blog called Groovity.

My name is Deborah Velásquez. I am an artist-designer with a passion for creating art.  
I work both traditionally and digitally. 
I have a love for painting, printmaking and silk screening. 

The mix of design, words and crafts light me up. Some of my favorite things are, coffee, magazines, art books, a sharpie and a sketchbook.

I am a licensed artist with The World Art Group and I have Just been named the First place winner of The Carpet Vista 2013 Competition out of Malmö, Sweden, My rug designs will be available late January 2014

Here is the start of my design process after a bit of research.
Some sketching and some motif painting.

I then prepare my blocks by cutting out my design. I do a few test prints in order to check my line work. 
I love the surprise of relief printing .
I like to mix printing and painting in the same piece of work.

I make  Word Art and I thought it might be nice to include this 
Word Portrait of the Rainforest in as a coordinate.




Thank you for stopping by.


You can now hop over to Jennifer Rogers blog and see how she was inspired by the Tropical theme and Radiant Orchid.
