A Collection Of Recents

Some

Hello!

Oh my, *checks calendar* it’s been way too long. I’m glad to be writing again! Even though I’ve been “quarantined” I’ve somehow let the days slide quickly. Is that possible? XD

Well, in my absence I’ve done a lot around my house, which I’ve enjoyed. It’s been nice having time to do things I’ve wanted to do, but just didn’t find the time to do. And luckily all of this craziness seems to be slowing down a bit at the start of Summer! I end my school year on the 22nd this year, and I can’t wait to have those long, fun Summer days ahead. Anyone else?

Well, lots of letters have passed through my *sanitized* (🤣) fingers, and I thought I’d share a bit ‘o recent letter art/lettering.

For some reason, I’ve been really into identical envelope art. Each day when I mail out letters, each day has different envelopes. A few days ago I did these black and white envelopes, using a white Signo broad gel pen.  This is a wonderful, affordable pen for dark papers as such. I also use it a lot for highlights when lettering, one of my favorites.

I suppose this was another themed day. XD I love using a slightly different tone of color on envelopes to do the lettering, it creates such a pretty, soft, simple look.

Ah, another! Hehe. I love doing this lemon-looking pattern. It was so Summery I couldn’t stop doing it. XD I used my Tombow Dual brush pens and the Tombow Fudenosuke brush pens for this.

I really enjoy using washi tape as borders for envelopes. If you’re running low on time, but want to make your snail mail fun with color, throwing a bit ‘o washi tape or sticker on there is a great way to spruce it up!

Using drop shadows is one of my favorite ways to do letter art. It just adds a little sumpin’ sumpin’. What are your favorite ways to spruce your envelopes? I’d love to know!

I’ve been enjoying lettering bible verses lately. Below is part of one of my favorite verses (and a sneak peak into the June BUJO setup(: ).

The walks lately have held many beautiful flowers and beautiful skies. Have you all walked this Spring? Do you have flowers blooming?

My cousin and his family came to visit a week or so ago, and so provided some photo opportunities of his little children. It was so fun! Toddlers and babies are interesting subjects. (:

Though, it is rather cute. XD

A few weeks ago I took a walk through the field while the flowers were in full bloom. I documented some of it, so here we are! (:

  1. These envelopes are so wonderful. Who wouldn’t love to get letters from you every single day. Though I love all of them, my favorites would be the black and lemon patterned envelopes. These are just not envelope’s you know, they feel like little bundles of positivity. You can set anyone’s bad day to a good day again by giving them a letter in these envelopes.

    Best wishes from The Strong Traveller and have a great day.

    1. Hey! It didn’t take me too long, about a month and I watched a lot of Youtube videos and I read a lot of books on it. (:

  3. Oh, how I wish I lived in a big house with a backyard and grass, and flowers. Cause I live in a closed neighborhood. The letters and flowers are do pretty though! And the mouse is the cutest.

    1. Aww, you’re sweet. Neighborhoods are nice, too, sometime I wished I had really close neighbors, but it’s good to be grateful for all we have, I suppose(: Isn’t the mouse cute? (: Thank you for the lovely comment!

  4. AK IS BACK!!!! I was literally just thinking about you last night, and then poof, I see your post in my reader. Those envelopes are adorable! I’ve been so inspired to do envelope art lately (that’s what I get for following Allison’s blog (A Farm Girl’s Life) XD), so I hope to try it when I send my next letters! It has been so Springy. So, I have been taking a lot of walks with my sister, which is also an excuse for me to take photos. I have way too many photos on my camera, haha! Fun blog post idea would be an envelope art tutorial. Your’s come out so good!
