A couple of weeks ago I'd been staring at a blank screen, wondering what designs to do next for Christmas when I stumbled across this!
It was such a relief to have someone plonk a whole list of ideas in front of me and I felt a sudden rush of enthusiasm. I've done so much Christmas over the years but I usually work to very tight themes. This was so broad reaching, covering so many different images that I really enjoyed it. I've never done an elf before, or a snow globe, or a Christmas jumper - and the angel and the snow-scene were quite novel too. It was a challenge making such diverse imagery hang together with a cohesive palette and style but I found that a few common elements, such as the holly, the snowflakes and the pine frond, had so much mileage when used in such different contexts. I could cheerfully carry on with this until I reach the 25 but it would be about mid February by then so I think I'll stop here.
Faye posted the reindeer image on her blog as day 15. You should go and have a look at the other pics she posted - http://fayebrowndesigns.blogspot.co.uk. They range from designs to photos to children's artwork and are just great!!!! Such a lovely idea Faye. Thanks!
