Lettering, Mail Art

MAIL ART – Copic Sunflowers on Yupo Paper

Happy Wednesday, all! Last weekend I was in California visiting Lawn Fawn (for my friend Kathy’s Coloring Challenge Road Trip). While I was there, I drew flowers all over the covers of some of Lawn Fawn’s catalogs using Copic markers. It was so fun and I immediately wanted to come home and recreate some of the flowers on Yupo paper for some mail art!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

First I created the envelope using transluscent Yupo paper and a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. Then I drew sunflowers and leaves on the envelope using Copic markers. These flowers were so easy and simple to draw! And I love how they turned out!

I then used a black Copic to letter Peggy’s name, and a permanent black marker to add her address.

NOTE: Mailing address used with permission. Thanks, Peggy! To submit your address for use on future mail art envelopes, please fill out this form. There is a new form each month to keep addresses current.

To assemble the envelope, I used Xpress-It tape, which seems to hold it very strongly. Postage stamps finished off the envelope.

Thanks for stopping by! I’ll be back very soon with a regular card video. :)
