I started of wanting to go back to my original icon design where I wanted to do something with Texas. I decided to add a spin to it and make it into a Texas/Western Christmas Stickers
I had a variety of Texas idea. I originally did a wreath of cactuses, a boot stocking, and a cowboy hat. I was not really pleased with the boot and the hat.
So I went back to the drawing board.
I decided to keep the wreath, and add an armadillo with a reindeer inspiration with a Rudolf nose and sleigh bells. The last one I added was a cowboy Santa. I put a cowboy hat on him and added the holly.
I needed to work on the bow and played around for a little bit. I added some shadow but I did not like how it turned out. So I kept woking with it until I got the final.
I think it all came together in the end with different elements of Texas and Christmas combined together,
