Studio Snapshot – Birds From Blobs On Envelopes

With the Open Studio Tour behind me, I figured it was time to catch up on some overdue correspondence. So, this past week I played with making blobs into birds, ending up with some colorful, happy envelopes. If you missed the instructions for making birds from blobs, check out my blog post: DIY – From Blobs to Birds.

The birds on these envelopes started out as little watercolor blobs. I love how festive they look!

After making the envelopes, I went to my local Post Office and got their last birds stamps. I hope they get more because I plan on making more of these envelopes.

I love how colorful these envelopes are. I demonstrated how to make these little birds during the Open Studio Tour, and they were instant hits.

I played around with different watercolors, and they all worked fine, even the inexpensive ones. All you need are some watercolor paints and a black marker.

Although you can't see it well in the photo, these birds were mad from metallic painted blobs. They really sparkle in person.

These envelopes are sure to brighten someone’s day. Why not try making some of your own?
