I could kiss Instagram, because lately it’s helped me discover so many awesome creatives that have opened my eyes to new, beautiful craft techniques. My latest discovery is the incredible flower art by Sister Golden – an online shop based in the US by Mother and Daughter duo Vicki and Brooke. The detail and the personality that comes through in these faces blows my mind!
Vicki is the clever cookie who creates these flower art pieces, as well as all the other handmade items in their store. Originally being inspired by the hashtag #facethefoilage by Justina Blakeney, Vicki being a gardening addict was a natural at creating their own portraits for fun, which quickly excited Sister Golden’s followers and developed into a booming section of their online shop.
With all details of the art collected from nature, Vicki simply styles these on piece of white foam core board and leave it all free-standing without glue and snaps photos of them. The end result is this incredible 3D effect that is jumping off the page. She offers commissioned portraits if you would like to see a loved ones face painted with flowers (such an amazing idea for a special gift!) or a range of gorgeous prints are available for sale here. I’m dying to get my hands on one for my studio, such a happy and free feel to the prints.
I’m left totally inspired!
