Butterfly Graphics From Blik

Christy Flora is an artist with a degree in Art and Design from the University of Chicago and she is a greeting card and stationery designer. Her greeting cards and stationery have been sold nationwide in small boutiques and in leading department stores such as Barneys NY. As part of her work, she makes hand-drawn, hand-cut and hand-colored paper butterflies and they inspired her new Flutter wall decal collection over at Blik. Christy is known for her whimsical illustrations and has been a long time collaborator for Blik because her clean colorful lines and happy imagery works beautifully when translated into wall decals which is their specialty.

“What I love about Flutter is the sense of movement the butterflies bring to a space,” said Christy. “I rarely see butterflies, but when I do, they bring me an unexpected moment of joy. With Flutter, I’ve brought one of the most beautiful parts of nature indoors and in turn (I hope) a smile to someone’s face.” What a sweet thought. I like how you can apply these decals however you would like on the wall as well so you can be creative with the arrangement of them.

I’m fascinated by the process of how makers translate their ideas into products and then, those products evolve into other ideas and products and well… it’s all quite magical to behold isn’t it?

    Are those the decals sitting on the tables? I think I love them in their three dimensions. I see stain glass mobiles!

    I just love insects in general…butterflies, scarab beetles, rolly pollies, I love them all! I’m gonna have to pop over to blik to see if they come in brighter colors. I also am inspired to maybe make them on my own and have them more 3-D. Thanks for sharing as usual!

    Love the butterflies! With Spring just around the corner they are a perfect fit:) I have been known to attach butterflies to the walls of my shop for a bit of whimsy. I love them:)

    Pastel butterflies look very nice with the solid interiors! This looks very creative and a good design to go with kids’ and babies’ rooms.. They sort of give you a nice breeze-feel when you look at them, it’s like imagining yourself in a field on a windy day.

    I like these butterflies. Last year I made some kind of butterflies for my daughter’s room; they were made from paper. Nice.
