Today I’m inspired by…birds. It seems like they are popping up everywhere- and not just outside. We have been watching a family of birds that made a nest near our home and they seem to have moved along. T has loved seeing them hatch and grow. Here is some birdy inspiration from the web:

Birdcage Tapestry from Urban Outfitters Inspiration point: I think these colors are great together. I always tell myself to try to use white for a background and it usually doesn’t happen. The large dose of white with hints of brown, orange, teal and yellow looks great together.

Bird Vase by Joanna Mendicino from Urban Outfitters

Pigeon Vase by J. Mendicino¬†Inspiration point: I just think this little guy is cute! Definitely something I could paper-piece on a layout or draw freehand. Check out J. Mendicino’s website for other birds (like quails and sparrows).

Happy As A Lark Coasters Anthropologie

Happy as a Lark Coasters from Anthropologie Inspiration point: Aren’t these colors great together? I also like the little flowers and dots in the background.

Journal Notebook Green Birds

Journal Notebook- Green Birds by Zany on Etsy Inspiration point: These birds are so cute! Definitely doodle-able. I also like the variety of colors that make up the pattern.

Blue and Yellow Bird Brooch

Blue and Yellow Bird Brooch by BlueTerracotta on Etsy¬†Inspiration point: Isn’t this guy cute?! I love the mix of fabrics used on this bird…check out BlueTerracotta’s Etsy site for more birds.

Graphic Plates Series 8 at Urban

Graphic Plates Series 8 from Urban Outfitters Inspiration point: I love office supplies (you may remember from a previous post) so these plates caught my eye. I think it would be cool to use the office-themed papers and apply rub-ons that wouldn’t necessarily “go” with that type of style.
