Illustration Friday: Magnify



A postcard and stationary card for Illustration Friday's "Magnify" theme. I'm a little behind this week and will be around to catch up with everyone soon. I have included a picture of my little friend Tar who came to visit me. He loves to sit on my deck and he also enjoys a little snack.

You just keep on being amazing. This is a lovely postcard and the ideas you create are so inviting.

I loved the look of your deck. Our old one in NJ before we moved was so similar. My husband built it and it led right into my loft studio.

Your little friend TAR looks right at home. Love the tree feature *:)

I love the pstcards because I love everything you do BUT I want to take a bath on the deck! I will be so clean if I lived there because I will not get out of the bath! Hello Tar! Keep Val company.

This is really lovely, val! Love the contrast of the blue against the yellow.

Connie said...

I love the mood created by the card in its outdoor setting. The deck is also the coolest thing I've seen in a long time!

so nice! looks like our new little bungalow (which, as soon as I can find my paints in the many, many unpacked boxes, I will paint to add to our collection of "houses we have lived in").

stay safe from the fires!!
