Enviro Christmas Style

Hi Girls, Well this is a very different Christmas look for me – I was recently asked to create an Enviro/Red Christmas design, and the brief included the idea to totally forego a sentiment.  This felt really strange to me, but once I had created this very paired back design, I realised the Christmas TreeContinue reading “Enviro Christmas Style”
