Mail Art | Envelope decorating

12.10.2014

I started painting on this plain padded envelope and didn't have any idea on where I was going with it so I set it aside. I was even going to throw it away because it was just adding to my pile of stuff. Then it occurred a few months later that I came across it again and finally made another attempt. I took out a paintbrush and acrylic paints and not so perfectly painted here and there. Here's what I came out with using stickers, washi tapes, and glitter.

When it's ready to be mailed, the recipient's name would go in the teddy bear shape. Btw, I drew the bear shape by hand then cut it out to make a stencil. Did I share that one already? I'll have to back track.


If you follow me on Instagram, here's a photo that I shared:

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
