Make Art That Sells-Part 4

This week’s project for Make Art That Sells was for “party paper”. Paper plates, napkins, cups, stuff for parties. This was my fave project too. The theme was “flora”. I decided to aim for a folky feel (but of course!).

I ended up using a combination of some older and newer floral sketches.

Then I went a bit crazy on the napkin. I just couldn’t help myself, haha!

I took the little flower motifs and arranged them into rows for the cup with a distressed background. I think I’m going to rework the cup a bit, maybe just put one flower on it with a border.

Doing the mock-ups was so much fun!

This was the last week of my e-course. I still have to go back and work on the baby apparel project that I never finished. I hope to post about that after the Thanksgiving holiday.
