At home with the creatures of the woods – Smock and Ballpoint
Have you ever wished that you could bring the outdoors in? The beautiful songbirds and other tiny (magical!) creatures that roam our gardens and woodland?
Often the odd finch will fly into our home, when we have our doors thrown open in the Summer months, but during colder Winter months, often the only bird seen nearby is our friendly robin who follows me wherever I go around the garden… sometimes, even fluttering about the woods as we go for our walks.
When I was contacted by Smock and Ballpoint, I completely fell for the stunning designs and illustrations of whimsical wildlife and was delighted to welcome these creatures into our woodland home.
Smock and Ballpoint beautiful wall decals are painted in watercolours, inks, and acrylic, and at first glance give the impression that there is a real creature in our home.
The collection of Smock and Ballpoint wall decals, work perfectly on a plain wall, above light switches, door frames, or as I have done, paired with existing wall decoration. I chose to place a flying goldfinch next to a woodland find which hangs over the entrance into our kitchen from the hall, giving the impression that the bird is about to land on it.
Of course, in our woodland, and in many homes, there are some other creatures that creep in, especially in Winter months… every year, we walk our woods and bring in our woodland fairy doors for a clean up and repair; the fairies are then ‘rehomed’ and this year, they have moved into our daughter’s bedroom!
Two perfect Smock and Ballpoint fairies, one perching on a shelf, the other busily painting painting books. The painting fairy, came with a beautiful cornflower illustration, we decided we would add this in the Spring and take it into the playhouse for the fairy to live in there!
Printed on quality Grafiprint digital inkjet media, the stickers are thin, and look flat on the wall, like a mural. They would be perfect on a toy box or in a child’s playroom and nursery. The Smock and Ballpoint decals are so beautiful, they work so well about the house, and because they are so life like, they are inoffensive and delight not just our daughter, but most adults who have seen them too.
Smock and Ballpoint paint and draw nature themed illustrations; plants, animals, humans and commissions are even welcome. Smock and Ballpoint‘s enchanting range of wall decals are for sale on Etsy and I highly recommend adding these beautiful illustrations to your home.
Why not take a look in our home and see all the woodland creatures who live here…
