3-D Antler Floral Art
There is a incredibly talented artist/photographer named, Kari Herer, who photographs her drawings with beautiful flowers. There are a few with foxes, bunnies, and some with antlers. I wanted one with the fox and the antlers but also wanted that three dimensional quality with them. So I decided to get inspired by her photographs and test out my drawing skills. Turns out the project only took me about 20 minutes to make. Here is how you make one yourself below…and if you don’t feel up to it, Kari’s prints are SUPER reasonably priced so visit her shop here. I am still going to buy her fox print!
Here’s what you need:
Water color paper ( mine is 22″x30″)
1 pencil with an eraser and 1 black graphite pencil or you could use a black pen
Silk flowers of your choosing (quantity and color are totally up to you)
Tacky glue or a hot glue gun
Here is how you make it:
It is really simple. Start by staging your flowers in the low center. Then with your regular pencil, draw the antlers lightly by looking at the picture. Just begin a little underneath the flowers and draw one side, then the other. When you are happy with your antlers, trace over them with the dark graphite pencil. Be careful not to smudge the paper with your hand. Once they are finished, remove the heads of the flowers from their stems and snip off the extra start of the stem on the flower head. Then glue in place. That’s it! And like I said it only took about 20 minutes to complete. I hung it on our bedroom wall using some clips because I love the frayed edges of the paper, but I am still thinking about framing it without the glass…I can’t decide! What do you think?
