We are almost knee deep in the holiday season and I found something that you might enjoy doing for your holiday cards, gifts and presents, perhaps.
I follow the blog, The Postmans Knock written by this very organized , talented calligrapher named Lindsey. She posts her beautifully addressed and painted envelopes and offered an envelop template (might have been free!) that I printed out and then traced onto 90lb. watercolor paper. See the results of my 1st painted envelop below.
