Here's my set for monthlyinspo round 29, which was a Christmas-themed mystery bag. I really didn't feel like making any Christmas cliché icons here, it's just not my cup of tea at all, so instead of using the obvious inpirations, I wanted to really take a look at what I had in my bag and how I could make these items work in a different way. I think I came up with some creative interpretations, maybe some of them seem like a stretch but hey, I tried :D

As usual, I wanted to focus on a specific style or technique. So in this set I went back to texture-heavy, composition-heavy icons with a special focus on shapes and geometry. I also wanted to use a lot of b&w and monochrome. I wish I could have kept the color scheme more cohesive, but the palettes and textures added some more color into this. Another element I wanted to experiment with is tiny text, because it's not really used much anymore and most of my own text use is very big blocky bold texts, but I remembered liking this smaller text style at some point many years ago and wanted to see if it can still be useful - I think as a result some of these look really old school but I don't mind, those were great times :D Anyway, clearly I had too many ideas already and then the bag added some more, so this set is a bit all over the place. I hope you can still roughly see what my vision was here, or if not, at least enjoy some of the icons individually :) Let me know what you think, and have a happy new year! ♥


[Mystery bag items]Used mystery bag items:
1. hot chocolate (I was inspired by the color scheme as well as the shape of a hot chocolate cup when looked from above)
2. palette Peppermint Mocha
3. texture by breathless @ da
4. texture by adriftingsea
5. texture by icon_dreams @ da
6. gumdrop (I used the typical shape of a gumdrop for composition)
7. mistletoe (for this I just used a random plant texture that also has some round shapes that reminded me of mistletoe berries)
8. palette Dear Santa
9. palette First Snowfall
10. ribbon (for this I had no idea what to make, so I googled "ribbon" and saw a ton of red horizontally drawn ribbons... so I figured, hey, let's just throw in a red horizontal stripe/bar and base the composition around it)
