Tiny Traveler Tilda | an Interactive Instagram Tale!

Tiny Traveler Tilda Map

Friends it’s been a bit quiet over her on Mer Mag lately. Which typically always means I’m up to my neck in exciting projects! For example tomorrow is our Mid Summer Mingle!!! I’m so excited and a little bit exhausted by all the late nights in preparation for this event. It’s going to be so so lovely!

I’ve also been working on a lot of illustration projects. Many of of which have turned into Instagram series such as Little Bits by Mer @mer_mag (#littlebitsbymer) – a series where I share an illustration and a little bit of a story to go along with. I’ve also started a Tell the Tale with Mer series (#tellthetalewithmer) where I unfold a story all with your help!. Tiny Traveler Tilda is the first #tellthetalewithmer story and with your help we’ve named this little adventurer, picked out where should would be going to, what she would bring along, what she would bring back and so much more!Tiny Traveler Tilda | an Interactiive Instagram Tale by MerThese are some of the illustrations from Tilda’s tale so far! It’s been so fun unfolding the story with all of your input. And because I’m unfortunately staying put this summer, this has also been a great way for me to indulge my travel bug a bit. Where would you want to see Tilda go? Follow me on Instagram @mer_mag to see how this fun and adventurous tale is unfolding and just how it will end! I truly can’t wait to share the rest of it with you!! And if you share and tag a friend I’m entering you in a drawing for a chance to win a finished copy of the story when it’s all through!

    I adore you and I adore your illustrations! I just have one favour to ask: PLEASE add New Zealand to your map so that your sweet traveller can come and visit us as part of her adventures!

    Hi there, just found out about Tilda. This is a great project, really love the idea and the illustrations!! It combines 3 very dear things to me: grandma stories, travel adventures and fantastic illustrations 🙂 Wish you the best and hopes Tilda enjoys a great home made meal (maybe one of granny’s recipes) at her arrival!

    Hi! I absolutely adore this story! Where can I buy a finished copy? I would love to have a paper copy because I honestly can’t think of a more perfect children’s read. Thanks so much!
