One of my favorite creative hobbies is mail art, AND one of my 2018 resolutions is to send more snail mail, so I’m going to walk you through three easy-to-create types of mail art.
The first technique is decorating the envelope with patterns or doodles. You’ll need some blank envelopes, Tombow MONO Drawing Pens, Dual Brush Pens, a ruler, MONO Eraser and pencil (if you’re like me and have trouble writing in a straight line without guides).
This technique focuses more on fun lettering and a little less on envelope decoration (although you could always combine the two for that extra WOW factor). Make the name of the recipient really stand out and have some fun with your lettering! Just make sure the address is still legible. The supplies you’ll need are blank envelopes, your Tombow Dual Brush Pens, MONO Drawing Pens, pencil, eraser, and a ruler.
And now for my all-time favorite mail art technique. This one has the name and address of the recipient inside a drawing. This fun balloon design would be great with a birthday card, and click through on the Instagram post below to see how to use the Tombow Dual Brush Pens to create a watercolor-look umbrella design. For this technique you’ll need thick envelopes, a paint-brush, jar of water, Tombow Blending Palette, MONO Drawing Pens, pencil, eraser, and of course Dual Brush Pens in your favorite colors. Will you be creating any mail art in 2018?
