Botanical Art Inspired by Anthropologie

 Hi Friends,

Some of you might know that live in Charlotte, North Carolina where we have a beautiful spring flowers. Charlotte also has a tough allergy season.  Part of my glamorous weekly routine is to receive allergy shots to build up my immunity to these allergies. Glamorous right?  So, during the mandatory 20 minute waiting period after the shot I use their free WiFi and look at pretty things on my phone.  Today I came across this really pretty print by Caitlin McCain for Anthropologie.  It is lovely with a great balance of white space and floral illustrations.  It simply made me happy.  Like most items on my Anthropologie wish list, it was not in the budget.  Then….  I had an idea.

I asked for some printer paper from the receptionist  and started doodling.   Once home ,  I got out some of my kids crayola markers and began filling in the colors.

This was a fun spring drawing without an Anthropologie price.  It is simple and doesn’t require an antihistamine  to enjoy its beauty.  Here is my botanical art inspired by Anthropologie.

It is no Caitlin McClain, but it is a nice piece that I can enjoy.  To check out more illustrations by Caitlin McClain check out her shop Little Low Studio.  She has beautiful pieces without the Anthropologie price.

    This is so pretty but I’m not such a good doodler {is that a word?} haha. Oh goodness these allergies are killing me! I’ve never had them so bad! I’m actually taking medicine now which helps because I’m a scaredy cat when it comes to shots. The whole feeling hungover when you didn’t party it up the night before is probably my least favorite part though. My mom has had them realllllllly bad ever since moving to Georgia and I’ve been trying to convince her to get the shots. Do they seem to work better than any pills and how long do they last?

    Thanks for sharing at The Makers!

      Man the southern allergy season is brutal. I have been doing the shots since November, so hopefully I will build up immunity and can eventually stop taking allergy meds. I am crossing my fingers.

    Carmody, this is so, so gorgeous–and perfect for spring! And I am so impressed by your doodling :)

    Oh wow this is beautiful!! Love that it’s a freehand doodle but totally doesn’t look like it, especially in the frame!

    • carmody April 1, 2014 at 12:15 pm #

      Thanks Amy! Frames can make anything look a little more polished.
