See the Sea

Some sea animal themed paper goods from Lore Obrejea (loreillustration)! My friend loves animals and decided to go with an aqua animal theme:)

smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic…”

Tea Time ☕️

This letter is on its way to my dear penpal, Sirke Dunzendorfer!! I’ve never really had a penpal from another country and I’m really quite thrilled! Hope you like it, Sirke! ☺️

I recently painted a used tea bag (shown in picture above) and honestly drying the tea and removing the leaves was initially a bit confusing for me HAHAHA! It was quite a funny experience, but it’s a little hard to paint on used tea bags because they’re small, crumbly and easily torn compared to normal paper or watercolour paper!

Goodies!!!

I also went on Pinterest to source for some paper goods and included some food stickers in the goodie bag too!

Meals in the mail

This letter is currently on its way to Naomi Bulger!

Naomi wants to celebrate food, nostalgia, hand-written communications and community all in one go. Then we can stir, sizzle, mix and bake each other’s recipes, and weave them into our own stories! Your letter needs to be postmarked by 1 July, 2017, to be included in this project, where she will send a free copy of the book or zine to every contributor.

Let’s write this recipe book together!
