No 2: Outgoing #Postcircle

18 Aug

My Second #lettersocial Post is about outgoing mail.

Today’s #lettersocial is all about the How of Letter writing. So I thought I would show you some of my out going mail replies I have sent before I tell you about my How.

If I am stuck for inspiration I find it from Pinterest, Mail Art etc and then add my own twist.

For example I really loved this image from Pinterest and found it inspiring …

It’s by the Washington Calligraphs Guild; they have some lovely mail art.

Taking this as inspiration I then have used the ‘flower’ idea to adorn my own letters.

I have also taken inspiration from techniques such as decoupage.

And just use general doodles, good old washi tape and some ink stamping, to prettify.

I try to always wrap up the tuck in parcels I send. I don’t send tuck ins all the time just now and then when I have an idea. I tend to send a group of tuck ins together.

As for the tuck ins themselves… I’ve covered ideas in a previous post and haven’t exhaust this yet for my letters but I am gathering new ideas all the time and I jot them down in my little note book dedicated to my penpal planning.

And that’s what my outgoing mail tray looks like.

My next & final post today will be on the today’s #lettersocial topic: The How.
