Naturally Inspired

I’ve been working on some stationery for a baby shower inspired by nature journals and Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer’s Night Dream. Firstly, I’d like to state that I’m not really a fairy person. Meaning, I’m not drawn to images of fairies,  I wouldn’t look twice at a fairy figurine, and tinkerbell is definitely not my favorite Disney character (quite frankly, sometimes she downright annoys me). Usually, when it comes to fairys, butterflies, rainbows, etc. it can get really tacky really fast (just imagine every 11 year old girl’s sketchbook or an array of the worst deviant art accounts you’ve seen). However, that is not to say that it can’t be done right, as I discovered when I was doing some research for this event. When it is done right, as Elizabeth Messina and Tricia Fountaine did below, it is truly understandable why so many poorly made imitations are out there…

I was floored when I saw these images. Every minute detail has been taken into account, everything is gloriously whimsical. It’s enough to make you wish you were a fairy, living in the forest, without a care in the world.
