Try a unique twist on drawing flowers.
Create a digital flower still life in 5 easy steps!
This is a fun way to introduce your young artist to digitally altering photos. I recommend doing this project together or better yet…have the whole family involved. Everyone could create their own flower to add to the still life. What a great mother’s day gift (This also could be a great teacher appreciation gift from the whole class)!
If you need flower inspiration take a walk outside and sketch the flowers you see or talk about the shapes that make up the flowers. Nature is always a great free source of inspiration.
Scanner or Camera
Step 1: Draw your flowers individually along with a vase on white paper.
Step 2: Take a digital photo or scan your flower and vase drawings.
Step 3: Edit your flower and vase photos with a photo editing program (we like PicMonkey and its free!) Shown below is one example of how you can use PicMonkey to create fun colored digital flowers.
Step 4: Print your flowers and vase and cut out with scissors.
Step 5: Arrange and glue your flowers and vase on to a piece of construction (or scrapbook) paper. We used different colored paper to create a pattern for the background behind the flowers and a darker colored paper for the table that is behind the vase.
