I’ll be wrapping these up with some snail mail letters.

Materials used – Kraft cardstock, Reeves gouache, Liquitex paint markers  & Derwent graphik line painters


Hand painted envelopes

Since January 2015 I have been sending letters to pen pals all over the world !
It is the best hobby as it allows you to be creative with paper and also make friends
with people by writing letters to them. I love coming up with new ideas of what to send
my friends in the mail.
I thought it might look nice if I painted some envelopes with gouache .
Here are the results 🙂


Deep Sea Diving

I’m one of those boring people who like David Attenborough documentaries . I’m hooked especially if it has anything to do with the deep sea.
All it takes is a weird fish to reel me in.
