A Fallish Type of Post // The One About Mail

Is my big pink sweater, snow pants and fuzzy socks a bit much?

Nah. Guess what, it’s Fall! Yessssssssss!

I have posted way to many posts talking about how much I love Fall (literally 4,579 of them), but have I posted 4,579 times about how many times I love Fall letter art? *sly smile*

I have had a bit of a letter pile-up-catastrophe of late. I sat down to solve it today and after excitedly glancing at my calendar where the words “FALL!!!” were written a various amount of times, I decided to break out the watercolors and the plaid wash tape and hit it.

Here they are(:

I love uniformity in colors and patterns in my letter writing. And I love sending tea in the cooler months, it’s just a fun something you can send that, even if you don’t drink it, can spark a little happy. I used gray, gold and red for this letter, andI like the outcome pretty well. What do you thinks?

I have been enjoying the torn paper technique for accents on the envelopes. The torn photos and music and wash tape at a interesting difference in textures that I really enjoy. It’s easy and fun, you should definitely give it a try!

I remember, when I was little, my Mama let my brother and I each pick out a pumpkin at a local outdoor nursery. My brother, being a little boy, got a funky looking green one with spots and a curly stem. I remember looking for awhile and the I found a little round pumpkin with tiny pot full of flowers in it. I wanted to paint that, so I did on some envelopes! I want to do that to some pumpkins this year.

I had this picture in my mind of a girl reading in a window seat, and so I transferred it to an envelope. I would like to be her, wouldn’t you?

Ahh, the colors of Fall… (:

I’ve found that using sticker letters is a super fun way to spice up an envelope, and it’s super easy! This one was fun.

Well, I must go. I hope you all enjoyed this little array of envelopes, and I will see you next time!
