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 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.
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 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!
