Don't you just love it when 2 things collide? And we mean when they collide in a good way. This week's Illustration Friday theme is Safari. And since we've already mentioned we have a practical streak and a newly discovered fascination with fabric postcards, we've decided to combine the two. We have a lot to learn about fabric postcards....mostly in working in such a small space. This little card is only 4 inches x 6 inches. We've discovered it's all about simplifying. And in case you haven't noticed that's a discipline that doesn't come naturally to us..... being inveterate complicators ... but we're trying.
For any illustrator/artist types who've arrived here through the Illustration Friday link (and not familiar with quilter/seamstress proclivities) this is a fabric collage, held in place by stitching.
We've just joined a fabric postcard trading group called Postcard Cottage. There are some fabulous postcards floating around there. We wonder how long we'll have to wait until the Safari topic comes up. :)
