Did I mention I’m drowning in vintage illustrations?
I’ve been stocking up on antique die-cuts and struck gold with these illustrations ideal for bird nest clipart. Plus, I found egg illustrations for specific species, like the Bulfinch eggs pictured above.
There are a lot of projects you can use these for. Animal flashcards, Easter basket add-ons, dioramas, Valentines, and art assignments are just a few ideas that come to mind.
And before I forget…
