Make Art That Sells – Week 5: Gift


Week 5 was for the gift market. Our mini was to draw items from things that we collect. I have several collections including shells, beach glass, vintage fashion magazines, stickers, jewellery and nail polish (ha!).

I started drawing my nail polish collection and also my jewellery collection and then I remembered that I had taken lots of photos of flowers and I started to paint flowers with my acrylics because I became obsessed with painting.

Our final assignment was to create a zipper pouch. I tried adding photos and doing an inkblot pattern à la Mary Katrantzou but it just didn’t look right. Again, I composed everything in photoshop. I will also revisit this project to make the coin pouch different than the large pouch but I’m pleased with how it turned out.

Hopefully I will get to take some more of Lilla’s classes. I learned so much and it was a great experience.
