The Dynamic Duo #1 - Examples of Art Collections & Mockups

My definition of the dynamic duo in art licensing is the creation of art collections and product mock-ups that showcase art themes. Creating both gives artists an advantage in licensing their art. Learn more about art collections by reading "What are Art Collections and Why Create Them?" and about product mock-ups read "What are Product Mockups and Why Create Them?"

Thanks to the generosity of artist / art director Joanne Fink of Lakeside Design, I will be doing a series of posts showing art collections and mock-up examples that Lakeside Design have created. Today's post illustrates that a collection of patterns can not only be used for fabrics, gift wraps, and scrapbooking but also other products.

Below are two 2-page layouts of Joanne Fink's Nordic Christmas collection patterns with greeting card, mug, pillow, and rectangular candle product mock-ups.

Below is a two page layout of Eileen Biedrzycki's Christmas Time collection patterns with giftbag, greeting card, and pillow product mock-ups.

Below is a two page layout of Diana McMackin's Snowflake Elegance
collection patterns with mug, pillow, album cover, note paper, and file box product mock-ups.


  1. Joan…I want to know how do they place the pieces all together on one page to display after they mocked up each one individually?

  2. Cheryl, they use Photoshop by opening a new page and drag the mockups images into it, resize the mockups and place them where they wish on the page.
