Happy Monday, all! This week is Mail Art Week! I’ll be sharing a new mail art envelope each weekday. For today’s envelope, I showed how to take a printed name and transfer it to the envelope for embellishing. This is a super easy way to get a precise font or lettering style. I used Acrylograph Paint Pens for most of the color. I used one Karin Pigment Decobrush marker in Red Violet as well. Enjoy the video! (Wondering what I used in this video?
