Hi all, today I thought it would be nice to create some 'happy mail' goodies, including decorative envelopes and mixed media tags. I know we can't all get to a post office at the minute, but these can be saved to use after we come out of lockdown.
I have used the gorgeous goodies from the April Lollipop Box entitled 'My Secret Garden'. I love this month's box so much, so vibrant and fresh for Spring and just what we need to cheer ourselves up during isolation.
Disclaimer: I received this box as part of my Creative Team role. Read my full disclosures here.
Decorative Envelope Art
I started this envelope by painting the grass with watercolour paint. Lisa has added some green paint for you to do this in your kits... I must admit I had forgotten about that so used my own paint - doh! I then used a stencil with an ink pad to add the circles. Finally adding the stickers from the kit and one of the gorgeous stamps to finish it off.
For the next envelope I used a mix of watercolour paint and stencils/stamps, then went over it with a black biro to bring out the detailing. I topped it off with a sticker in the corner and cut up one of the postcards for the Wild and Free quote, lastly using a biro again to create a border.
Mixed Media Tags
Finally I played around by making 2 mixed media tags which could be sent in your happy mail or used in your journals or junk journals. The brown tag comes in the kit already pre-stamped so that's a bonus. I simply added some embellishments from the kit and then made a border using a black biro and a white posca pen. The key on the tag from the kit really sets it off beautifully.
The second tag I just used Daniel Smith watercolour paint and created the border in the way. I then added a sticker from the kit - Be Wild and Free.
