A new year full of creativity and opportunity is upon us and SPDG member Bethania Lima of Santiago, Chile is kicking it off by participating in a mega blog hop* of surface pattern designers from around the world. Believe Creative Studio of The Netherlands is curating the event, which will include an amazing array of work from almost 50 international artists. Participants will be showing off a mini collection created just for the occasion, inspired by a theme worthy of jump starting the new year: Let's Fly! The designers will also be making use of Pantone's 2013 color of the year, emerald.
The grand tour of surface pattern design begins Thursday, January 10 at 14:00h GMT (EST:9:00) (NY), starting with the site Pattern Addict, and runs through Sunday, January 13.
*BLOG HOP: A promotional event in which multiple bloggers post about a related theme during a specified time frame and link to each other's blogs so that readers can "hop" from one to the next. Blog hops often include giveaways and other special rewards for those who subscribe to a participant's blog, Tweet about it, or help promote it in some way.
