Today I’m inspired by…butterflies. T has been pretty excited about seeing butterflies ever since he saw on PBS that caterpillars change into butterflies. I didn’t even think he was paying attention but then he saw a caterpillar and told me it would be a butterfly. Crazy for a 2 year-old! Here are some great butterflies from the web:

Bella Butterfly Artwork

Bella Butterfly Artwork from Pottery Barn Kids I love these prints- you can see them closer on the website. I will definitely be using my circle punch and some scraps to create art like this! These also incorporate buttons, ribbons, fabric and paint.

3-D Butterflies Pottery Barn Kids

3D Butterflies from Pottery Barn Kids Inspiration point: I love how these stand out from the wall and they look like they were made of patterned paper. I think Martha Stewart has a cute butterfly punch (or this one!) that would be perfect for these!

 Mia Art

Mia Art by Pottery Barn Kids Inspiration point: I definitely have to get out the watercolors to replicate this. I like how the background is striped and the butterflies are on top. I bet it would look great with some vintage-looking typed paper from an old dictionary or something.

DwellStudio for Target Butterflies Decorative Pillow Inspiration point: Wouldn’t this make a great background or accent block on a girly page? I love how there are different patterns. You could just ink the edges or sew the butterflies on.

Botanicals Published by Assouline Inspiration point: I think butterflies themselves are full of amazing color combinations. This book would make for some amazing inspiration!
