Mail Art Dabbling
September 4, 2016 § 10 Comments
There are some truly spectacular mail artists in the world. Me? I’m more of a creative dabbler.
Recently, I’ve tried my hand at a couple projects inspired by tutorials generously shared by Lindsay at The Postman’s Knock. Lindsay’s examples are gorgeous and precise. My creations are rather more wobbly, but it’s such fun to play!
If you look at Lindsay’s How to Draw Lace tutorial, you can see that she has worked with great care and achieved a very balanced design. In contrast, if you suspect that I did not follow the direction about using a ruler to measure the spacing of the ovals (or anything else), you would be correct.
My Hand Drawn Frame attempt turned out more true to the original. I used the ruler this time! I wasn’t sure how the envelope at hand would take watercolors, so I jumped right into bold color at the start.
What about you? Have you dabbled creatively recently?
