Time for a safari!

Copyright © Cheryl Coville 2011

 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. :)


  1. haha! Awesome! You now, it COULD qualify as "Summer Road Trip". ; )

    Thank you Cheryl - got your TEENY card and the big 5 bucks. : ) They only disappointing thing was that the card was only a Mary Engelbright illustration, and not an Grandma Coco design... oh well.
    you are too sweet! : )

  2. Boy, that was fast. Way to go Canada Post! I LOVE Mary Engelbright!

  3. Love it!! The expressions are wonderful. How do you do it?

  4. Just fabulous to explore new mediums. Well done.
