Succulent Art, Decor and Gift Items
29 May 2016
I predict 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.)
