Christmas Baubles (for 2 week pattern course)

This is my moodboard for my Christmas baubles pattern.  Now I'm off to do some drawing! :)

I've started sketching out some baubles for my design.  I'm sure I won't stick to these designs precisely once I get into Illustrator - but I know I want them very decorative.

Still drawing.  I have a tendency to be a bit tight in my designs so I'm trying to be a bit looser at this stage and hopefully that will translate when I go digital.

My first bauble - colours may change.

Working on more folky baubles in Illustrator.  I've found it easier for me to use my drawings as a springboard rather than tracing them directly.

I've been experimenting with laying out a repeat.  I'm not very happy with it though.  I think the baubles need more space around them. This feels too crowded to me.  As you can see, I tried it in a different colour way as well but not sure that convinced me either.  Time to try a different approach. This is hard!

OK - I think this is the direction I've gone in now.

It was still looking a bit empty so I added some greenery.

This is my final pattern - I tweaked a few colours and I also made a coordinating Christmas Card.
