Happy Christmas from Dreaming on a Star!
On 24, Dec 2016 | No Comments | In christmas, design, designer, holidays, illustration, inspiration, my work, seasonal, trends | By Tina
Hello everyone! December was an exceptionally busy one for Dreaming on a Star with 11 Christmas Markets!
But I managed to find some time to create an Advent doodle a day and here is the result. I challenged myself by using a limited palette and my influences were modern Scandi. I hope you like it!
I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas full of love and joy and the best of well wishes for a fantastic New Year!
Let’s bring more smiles and happiness into 2017. May all your dreams come true…♡

Tigerprint ‘Coming Together at Christmas’ Competition
On 19, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In christmas, competition, greetings, my work, seasonal | By Tina
Hi everyone. I entered a competition with Tigerprint and the theme was ‘Coming Together at Christmas’. The design was inspired by our personal idea of Christmas.
My ‘Coming Together At Christmas‘ moment is shopping for decorations with my Mum. Every year we love looking at the new decorations and seeing the wide variety of tree designs.
Here are my four entries. Three are patterns and one is a placement print.
The designs for the trees came from a doodle I did for the Advent Doodle challenge run by Faye Brown of Faye Brown Designs.
And here are the original doodles that made up the pattern. ♡
My Home is All Festive!
On 14, Dec 2012 | No Comments | In christmas, inspiration, seasonal | By Tina
Hi everyone. I have been busy decorating my house for Christmas. I hope you like it. ♡
This is the window in the living room. I love snow and this makes me think it’s snowing outside. Oh the weather outside is frightful!
I love eating my meals here with Christmas music playing in the background. Anyone for mulled wine and mince pies?
This is what I see from my studio table. Santa is looking down on me as I design!
I made this with a branch I picked up outside the house. I love snowflakes and Scandinavian design.
This is my living room. The main light is usually off and it’s very festive watching some Christmas films all snuggled up on the couch!
Santa is coming very soon, and he only comes to those who believe! Have you made a Christmas wish yet? ♡
