Monthly Mail Art with Kristina Werner – May 2018

Hello, all! Kristina Werner here again with more mail art! Last month’s Mail Art video (you can see it HERE) was a bit intense, so at the request of some of you, this month I created something more clean and minimal. This is a super easy (and yet striking) design.

The envelope I decorated is one of Simon’s envelopes and it was perfect for ink blending. I used the new Tap Dance stencil and ink blending to create a soft, quiet background for the envelope. The four colors of Simon ink that I used are Fog, Duckling, Catkin, and Mint.

After ink blending the background, I drew “wonky” lines in pencil to serve as guides for writing Tracy’s address.

NOTE: Address used with permission. Thanks, Tracy!

I used the extra fine Pilot Envelope Address Pen to write the address. I LOVE this pen! Not only is it waterproof, but it seems to last forever. :)

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy this month’s Mail Art. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Thanks for sharing a more simpler envelope, I love it!! I think this one I could do :) . I love the colors you chose!! I just put my Color Coordinates booklet together that Shari Carroll did so now I have those colors to pick from so I feel like I could really do an envelope like this with the tools I have that’s to everyone at Simon!! Thanks for sharing!!
