Birds of a Feather

It all started with a colouring sheet Oliver brought home from preschool:

He brought these home when I was expecting little Charlotte and just thinking about setting up a nursery fit for our little baby girl.  Looking at these little birds (a sheet I have seen reproduced at several preschool playtimes since O first brought it home...) gave me an idea!

I set to work with some interesting, colour-saturated paper - both patterened and plain, and created little collages in the shape and pattern of his colouring sheet birds. 

I really like the effect of the birds (I turned them into vinyl stickers at my local print shop), which I placed onto a "wire" I drew onto the white nursery wall.

The whole flock, available here !

I love that our little Charlotte noticed these brightly feathered friends very soon after she was born...they were made with lots of love...


  1. Those birds are adorable. Great idea.

  2. This is such a simple and lovely decision - I regret that something like this did not come to my mind when my baby was small. Well, next time, may be.

    Your daughter is adorable )

  3. Lovely - both the birds and the GIRL!

  4. That is adorable -- so simple and colorful. Love it!

  5. Very stylish design - and your daughter is very cute!:)

  6. I love the birds! Such great colors and patterns too.
    Also thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! xo, Mary

  7. Thanks for the sweet "tweets" on this little projet d'art! I've actually been quite busy packaging sets of them for customers...a good thing!
