Using my new set of watercolors I wanted to see what I could do to decorate a few pieces of plain white cardstock (that I had in front of me at the moment, everything else is still in unpacked cardboard boxes). Of course I wanted to turn them into notecards being that I love stationery. My husband and I recently moved and our new town does not have any stationery stores!
I took out my brushes and went to work. I painted stripes, a Hello, and applied washi tape. The washi tape was part of a set from Target which also included the wooden tape holder. How I miss Target back at our old place. Luckily I stocked up on stationery on my last Target spree before our move..hehe. At least I can reminisce when I look at my purchases.. looney, I know. Sorry, getting side tracked. Back to my notecards, of course there are many other ways to decorate but I wanted to show you how simple designs like stripes (I'm a fan of stripes), words, and adding washi tape, can make plain paper good enough to send as snail mail (which I'm also a fan of).
Comes to think of it, moving to a place where there is no Target, no Papyrus, no Barnes & Noble, no stationery stores, or great stationery sections for that matter, has made me want to create things now that I have no outlet to get my stationery fix easily (am I repeating myself again? I guess that's a good thing though.
