Wow, it’s already the sixth episode of Art Lab! Today I made a sunny, breezy, dandelion envelope.
I used these two pieces of art as inspiration. Aren’t they so pretty? Unfortunately, the links to the original websites didn’t work (or in the case of the last one, it was an Etsy piece that had already been sold.) 😦 Argh! It’s so annoying when that happens. Anyway…
For my envelope I first drew the dandelion in pencil, then watercolored around it. I blended a few different shades and colors of paint, then splattered some blue and purple paint on for fun. (I covered up the dandelion with a piece of paper so it didn’t get splattered.) Then I traced over the penciled in dandelion and flyaway seeds with Sharpie. I also added a few splatters and “wish” on the envelope flap in front. Ta-daa!
This is a great spring or summer envelope you can make to pretty up your next handwritten letter – or you can make this same art on a canvas, ATC, etc.
Have fun and do art!
