I love art and I hate seeing my bedroom walls all empty so I decided to make an original piece of art to decorate them. I have always been inspired by elements so I wanted to make a medallion that had the four elements on it. I also wanted to include some of my favorite animals on the art piece so I included a lion, a wolf, an eagle and an elephant. I also wanted to have a frame so I added four squares that bordered the medallion and gave it an illusion of a frame.
In order to make this art piece, all you have to do is design a circle and decorate the inside with the four elements. The actual designs have to be rastered onto the cirlce but the rest of the circle can be vector cut out. Next you have to simply make four more smaller cirlces and live trace the images of four different animals. After that, you have to design the four squares with any pattern that you want and print them out. Finally print the art pieces using wood and a laser cutter. Next you have to use wood glue and glue the four animal circles onto the actual medallion. Then using double sided tape of any kind or removable mounting tape just tape the pieces onto an empty wall.
