Wedding invite

At the weekend I worked on a friend's wedding invitation. This is the map I've drawn. I'll show the whole invite once I've finished it and she's sent them out. You can see that I was looking at RIFLE Paper Co. for inspiration (my favourite stationary company) but I tried to not be too inspired and to keep my own style.

I'd hoped to do 'At the weekend' drawings the last two weekends and didn't get a chance for either. Never mind. Hope your week has started on a good note.


  1. That's simply beautiful. In my next life, I will paint too.
    That green water suddenly looked strangely refreshing, I must be thirsty!
    Kindest regards,

  2. that is such a great little painting ~ what a marvelous idea!

  3. This is really lovely, i love your drawings. Your friend is very lucky.
    Have a great day :)

  4. I love maps and I wish I could paint them like you Jill!
    Instead I'm going to a workshop with Alicia Merrett to make a map quilt!

  5. Wow, that is awesome. If someone did something that amazing for my wedding I'd be well chuffed.

  6. what a smart idea to have you design & paint this wedding invite !
    it looks awesome !! well done my friend !

  7. What a lovely way to paint a map! It reminds me of the movie Emma (Jane Austen) with Gwyneth Paltrow, the paintings in the intro :-)
