I was reminded the other day that Beatrix Potter’s artworks became part of the public domain back in December. Immediately, I thought of Mr. Toad from Potter’s classic “The Wind in The Willows” and started searching for some of my favorite prints. While curating, a flood of creative projects came to mind too, especially mixed-media projects like dioramas and outdoor patio decor. Look for even more tips and ideas that you can do with vintage frog prints at the end of this post!
