(Pen-Pal) Letter Art

8th April 2020 Our House 123 Anywhere St., Any City.png

Hello! I’m glad to be back posing again. It’s already been a week since the BUJO Series I did! Wow, this past week’s gone fast!

Well, today I’m back again with something similar to that. I’ve been catching up on a lot of letters to my friends lately, and I was using a few themes when making my cards. I only took a few pictures of each card while I was making them, but I thought I’d share, anyway!

For the first card I chose the cute little saying/quote “Advice from a Sunflower” (In full below)

I just lightly sketched in the words.

Then, I used my fudenosuke hard tip over the words.

Then I took my little kneaded eraser (that looks somewhat like an astroid😂) and went all over the words to get rid of the pencil.

Then I had to choose my colors for the sunflower. I didn’t want it to be too dark or two light, so I tested out all the ones in between.

I chose two medium colored yellow/orange. (I always love trying to decide colors!)

Then I started sketching out the sunflower. I did the darker petals in front, then the lighter ones in back.

Then I had to choose a brown color. I tested a lot of different colors, and again ended up with a lighter and a darker color.

I colored the center with the light brown color. I could’ve left it like this, but I felt like it needed something else.

I just did a lot of messy dots inside that circle. It was what it was missing!

img_9024

I chose not to outline anything with a black pen so the words were more visible. It ended up looking pretty cute!

Then I went to make the envelope. It’s fun making a theme between the card and envelope! I went to find the middle…

(Also, sorry for the odd lighting!)

Then I got a jar out and put it in the center of the paper, but off-center of the middle. (To the left of the center. Does that make even a hair of sense?🤣) Then I traced around it.

Then I sketched out the petals. Make sure the circle (the center of the flower) is wide enough to put an address.

Then fill it in with a Micron (or other black pen) and color. This sunflower is a lot more basic, with a little bit of an animated look.

img_9048

Then I chose the colors of wax beads I was going to use.

IMG_9054.JPG

There we go! Aren’t they cute? I love sunflowers.

IMG_9057.JPG

Then I made another one! I used Proverbs 16:24 for the next card. I used a honey comb as the characters in this one.

IMG_9060.JPG

Then I made the envelope similar to the card.

IMG_9075.JPG

They both turned out pretty cute! I cut out a little foam cat and then colored it in and added blush. That makes everything better, right?😄

img_9077

Then here came another one! I really liked how this one came out!

img_9120

(Sorry this is so blurry! I only got one picture☹️) I really like how this one looked!

IMG_9130.JPG

Then I went to make the matching envelope again.

IMG_9136.JPG

I added some sketchy lines where I was going to put the address, and I did the same kind of flowers on the card.

img_9138

(Again, Blurry!) I did the same for the return address.

IMG_9142.JPG

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed!

Have a great day!

2019 BUJO Setup, Day 7 (Last day!!)

text placeholder-2

Hi!!

Thank you for coming back for the last day of this little series! (I’m calling it a series, but its just pretty much one post stretched out over a few days😊)

I really like to have a fitness log in my Bullet Journal to good at and mentally cross-off one by one. I don’t “work out,” but every morning and/or night I do a little mini work out. I like to make them and I like to set a goal for them. A lot of my “work out” is for running. You can definitely edit this to your own if you are planning on doing something like this!

Sorry about the weird light ing in this post! (I think I’ve said that all week!😂)

 

 

Ah, A nice blank page. You might need two, or even three for your plan!

img_9147

I always just lay it out in pencil and then later go over it in micron or just pen. It helps if you want to change anything before the final. (Like I do later!)

IMG_9148.JPG

And then I just eyed some evenly distanced lines for the separate categories all the way down. (If you have a certain category that has more to it, just customize it to what you need.)

IMG_9149.JPG

img_9152

Then I colored it in with my Fudenosuke pens and Microns.

img_9156

Then you can  write down your plan for the month/week/year/day.

That’s it! I hope you enjoyed this mini series!

Bye, Friends!

Let Me know if you did any of these!

A Clump Of Photos

Bonsior!

I have accumulated, in the past months, a large amount of, to the best of my knowledge, random photos of random things, and I thought it would be fun to pour them out here for you all to see!

I can’t really say that I know the meaning of all of them, but maybe I call leave that to you!

Also, do you like French? I am learning it now and quite enjoy it😁

As you can tell by this delightful look on poor Maisy, She was really enjoying this wheelbarrow ride😃

IMG_9928.JPG

AHHH! Back when the beautiful golden leaves were still with us. *Tear slides softly down thy face*

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! A bookstore we stumbled upon in Jacksonville, AL.

IMG_8445.JPG

Hehe. We left my Grandparents house, and I only had these clean socks and these shoes, so I ended up with this. (I actually like it(: ) I matched the book store’s carpet😆

IMG_8736.JPG

A photoshoot with another friend. Oh, don’t you LOVE photoshoots?

IMG_8918.JPG

Maisy LOVES soccer. Evan and I play with her a lot, the actual game, AND SHE ALWAYS WINS. She can carry the ball in her teeth, and she can run SO FAST, that she just glides right by us into the goal!? SHE’S ALSO A GOALY. I’m not kidding. (😳)

IMG_8873.JPG

Look at these COLORS! Ah. Beautiful!

There’s just something I love about this old plow. Hmm.
