Be Inspired to Create a Hybrid

While looking though our collection of nature treasures this weekend, I was inspired to combine some of them to create a hybrids that exist only in my mind. An acorn hat and Japanese Cypress cone made a "pinecorn"

Hybrid

An unknown pod shell found at the Naval Academy combined with 3 unknown seeds from our local park to become a delicious mix of texture, shape and color.

Here's a Fall princess I made a couple of weeks ago from a gourd, a pumpkin and a corn cob we got from a trip to a local farm.

I combined some moss, a snail shell and some other finds to create a whole other world that exists in my imagination:
















And Finally I combined Butterfly wings and rose petals with a pod to create a new kind of butterfly.

































Take some time this week to think about combining different items together to create your own hybrid. It's a good exercise to keep your mind open to all sorts of possibilities. Feel free to share your hybrids in the comments!
