One More Festive Design...

By susanbates, Oct 21 2013 10:58PM

I've recently designed this Christmas design of Christmas baubles, in shades of blues and purples. (It's a nice change from the usual red and green colours often associated with Christmas!)

The design is featuresd in issue 106 of 'Cross Stitch Gold' magazine and it's on sale and in the shops now, yay!

I really enjoyed working out the different patterns for each bauble and how they would all fit together. I'm really pleased with the colour scheme and how the different sizes and shapes of the baubles draw your eye around the design. The pearl garlands in the background work nicely and break up the vertical nature of the baubles.

All in all, I'm really pleased with how it turned out!
