Milkweed Slippers

Thursday, July 12, 2012

SUMMERTIME! I've been out exploring the wilds of Massachusetts. In the studio, I've been drawing a lot of little girls and wings for an upcoming project (eee!) Have you ever touched the inside of a milkweed pod? I can't remember if I have, but it's one of my summer goals.

Love your her wings and outfit with your cute pencils sketching. So adorable!!! You make wonderful and stylish characters.

Of course, everyone must touch the inside of milkweed! We set the feathers free and do double duty as seeds and wishes. Attractor of monarch butterflies and perfect for outfitting fairies' feet!

Oh yes! I got a milkweed pod at our local garden fair this spring and it is so very lovely! Was. I finally set them free for at least the birds to use, even if the seeds were too old to sprout. Now I wish that I hadn't!
