Succulent Art, Decor and Gift Items
29 May 2016
We’ll see stylized succulents used more and more in art, home decor, clothing and gift items. The way succulents are trending, they’ll soon become the “new florals” for…
A sign of things to come, these succulent socks are made of cotton, nylon and spandex. One size fits all. Around $10.
Create your own succulent-embellished items inspired by one or more of the 75 line drawings in my coloring book, Sensational Succulents.
Keep in mind, as you’re designing, that the difference between a succulent rosette and a flower is the center. Succulents have emerging leaves; roses, tiny overlapping petals. Flowers also have a central disk (pistil). And succulent leaves are much thicker than petals.
Succulent-themed gift items that feature my own photos and artwork are available at my Zazzle store: calendars, mugs, indoor and outdoor throw pillows, posters, stretched canvas prints, serving trays, T-shirts, holiday greeting cards, note cards, postage stamps, mouse pads, name tags, wrapping paper, and more.
Never pay full price at Zazzle. They charge too much. I use them because their production values are high and there’s no overhead, leaving me free to paint and design. (I receive only 10% of the sales price.) Especially if you want a high-ticket item, it pays to wait until they offer it at a discount…and fortunately they have something discounted every day…sometimes as much as 50%.
Queen Victoria agave, above, illustrates the exquisite symmetry of succulents. Zazzle offers a variety of sizes of my stretched canvas prints, starting at about $75. (I know. Too much. See my comment above about never paying full price when buying from Zazzle.)
