How to: striped watercolor envelopes
Another Friday, another set of envelopes painted with watercolors and out the door. (Last Friday’s envelopes here.)
With all the emails and texts we’re quick to send, I just love the idea of pausing to spend more time writing letters and sending cards. People don’t expect it.
To make these envelopes, I pulled out my trusty watercolors and picked a color. I painted line after line, loving how some lines were thick and some were thin. Some were dark; some were light.
Then I grabbed a second color, painting more lines. Sometimes my lines were between the first color lines. Sometimes they overlapped. No stress. No worry about perfection.
I left white space for the addresses, but you could just as easily write over the paint with a bold black pen.
If you have a few spare moments this weekend, pause and write to someone. Make the envelope extra special.
