All were created with scrapbook paper, watercolors, colored pencils, Micron pens, Gelly pen, tacky glue, stamp ink, and salt.

Nature Mail Art

Here is a recent Mail Art drawing I did recently for my swap partner. You draw on an envelope and send it on its way with some goodies inside. This one was a Nature theme. I looked through her profile and decided on frogs. Media used: Micron Pens, Colored Pencils, and a white Gelly Pen.
