Pretty Watercolour Paintings // A painted envelope from a friend


Hello! I’m back for a quick post to show you the creative efforts of–no, not me–my sister and my best friend, who are two lovely artists. These first photos are by my sister Ruth, and they are pen and watercolour on watercolour paper.

It’s not perfect (no one will tell you that more than Ruth, haha!), but don’t you just love it’s pretty simplicity? It captures the imagination.

She likes this one a little better, but I actually like the first one best. But I think this one technically has less mistakes. 🙂

And now–this the envelope of a lovely letter I received today, from my best friend. Isn’t it so pretty?? (The colour blocks are to keep our addresses private.)

Speaking of painted envelopes and letter writing, I just recently read this wonderful blog post with lots of inspirational ideas that I intend to implement with my next letter.

Well, that’s all for today! Hopefully I’ll have more soon… 🙂

What are your favourite things to do with your letters? Do you prefer watercolours, acrylics, or oil paints?

Yours truly,

Magaidh
