OK, so I admit, it looks a little like a rainbow threw up. But I don't mind...
The landlord thinks it's hilarious when I drop off rent checks smeared in pink and turquoise polka dots. I'm not sure what the mail clerk at the electric company thinks, but I hope it puts a smile on their face :)
Truth be told, I don't paint envelopes to impress, I just do it to use the leftover paint stuck on my brush after a project.
I figure that paint can go down the sink, or it can go down on paper.
So I just grab an envelope and give it a good smoosh.
Tada! Instant mailbox candy.
Sometimes, if the envelope is made of thick paper, I'll run it under the faucet as well, then the paint goes on like water color. Then I clip it up on a clothes pin and let it dry until next time I want to paint.
Simple pleasures :)
