Adventures In… Letter Art (and other things)

Add a heading-5.png

Hello Everyone!

Are you all enjoying Spring?

I have written lots of letters lately, and I love doing art on the cards and envelopes, and I thought y’all might like to take a peek!

I do lots of different styles, but they all mainly include brush lettering and/or watercolor.

Bible verses are some of my favorite things to put on cards. They’re fun to look up, fun to write, and they look nice on cards(:

I really like to use watercolor and quotes in the making of my cards. I have a section in my bullet journal where I stash my favorite quotes and I have another journal that I write down my favorite verses in. It helps to write these things down so you don’t have to go ‘a searchin’😁

I really like drawing scenes in colored pencil as well. (Sorry, this one isn’t my greatestπŸ˜†)

Themed cards and envelopes are really fun to do.

Doing a outline around the addresses and stamp with a theme (ex. leaves or black lines like in picture 3) can add a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to your envelopes.

ATC’s! My favorite(:

Well, that wraps it up for this (shorter) post. I hope you enjoyed reading this! Let me know which envelope/other was your favorite, I’d love to know!

What was your favorite? What’s the longest letter you’ve ever writtenΒ (mine was ten pages–yesterday!)? Do you have a pen-pal?

  2. wow, your lettering is bomb ❀ (do people still say that?) I especially love the watercolor/textured effect in the last one. I've been wanting to get more into hand-lettering but never really finding an opportunity– maybe I'll start!
    having a pen pal sounds fun πŸ™‚

  4. Great post! These turned out so great! For the life of me, I cannot get the lettering just right. I run a blog about trying all sorts of new hobbies and activities. My most recent post is about my attempt at calligraphy! Check it out!

    1. Thank you! Yeah, lettering took me awhile to learn, too, but once you get the hang of it with just the right supplies, it’s not too bad(: I will! Thanks again.
