The air is cold and crisp. The trees are losing their leaves faster than I can rake them up, and I find myself drinking hot tea by the gallons... It's time to get out the paints and start dabbling away. First, I must caution you. I am a complete amateur, I really don't know what I am doing...but hey! Watercolor is a friend to all. I must warn you also, that trying to do any blending on regular paper is next to impossible. If you try your hand at watercolor (and I completely urge you to do so...) you might find yourself a bit frustrated because if you work on anything but watercolor paper you will have a big puddle of wavy paper. So, this is about the best I could do with the paper envelopes I had. I did find a link to watercolor envelopes, but they were outside of my budget for now. If anyone wants to go in halvsies let me know! :-)
Here is one going out to Sheryl! The nice thing about pumpkins...they are so naturally irregular that they are very forgiving to budding artists. :) I love the postage on this letter!
This particular study.... I'm pretty sure that I overworked it a bit. Ah...there is always next time!
I love this sweet little watercolor birdie with its cauliflower bloom on it's breast! haha. Oh the joys of watercolor! I think that the postage on the birdie envelope is my favorite!
Here is some of my top pics of washi tape that I am using right now on outgoing snailmail!
I do almost all of my work at my desk. It's not usually so neat and clean, I think I dumped everything onto the floor for this picture so you wouldn't see how messy I really am.
Well, I think that wraps up the autumn themed snail mail that I sent out this week. What are you sending out?
Happy Snail Mailing,
