I have been working on the 2017/18 Christmas designs in the last few months. First I started with three main trends - a natural, a traditional and a vintage inspired one, and after creating the moodboards and colour palettes, I decided to stick with the vintage one. 
So first I put this moodboard together and reduced the colours. What I really liked about this theme: the shapes of the vintage Christmas ornaments and the embroidery, that is why I started to use lots of flowers, even though they are not very christmas-y, but somehow it felt just right.
And the result is a fun, floral, vintage-inspired christmas-themed illustration- and pattern-collection.
