Tropical Inspiration

Tropical Inspiration | Sycamore

The leaves may be turning colors here in the mountains where I live, but I’m still feeling inspired by the tropics. Tropical plant life mixed with modern architecture (like in the photo below) was a big source of inspiration for my Bright Brush collection of cards. (Other sources of inspiration: post-modernism, brightly painted macaroni necklaces, and Australian design.)

And then in August, we were able to have a family reunion in Vieques, Puerto Rico, which is where I snapped these photos. Crescent-shaped, white sand beaches rimmed with palm trees all to ourselves — it was paradise.

I’m sure I’ll be coming back to these photos for a little warm weather inspiration all winter long! – Eva
