There are a few colours that I really like. Most shades of blue, most shades of green, everything red and warm hues of pink. Bright yellow can be lovely too. Other’s I’m less fond of – cold shades of purple come to mind. And while I never disliked orange, I never liked it either. Every time I did, it felt a little like an exception, despite the fact that I’ve seen others do stunning things with the colour. So today I decided to challenge myself and use some of that orange washi tape I’ve got and genuinely do like, but that always get’s neglected.
This letter’s gone out to Amanda, a new penpal from London. I’m hoping she’ll like the cheery bright colours.
In practically all of my letters I include a little mail tag envelope. I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the concept, but I think it’s a great way to get to know things about your penpals life and later help keep things interesting. If you want to find out more about it, have a look here.
I’ve probably said it before, and I’ll probably say it again – I love that cat washi tape so much, it’s just pure fun! I’ve been using it so much recently that I’m wondering if I should get another roll of it while I’m home.
I like how using these paper bags make the letters seem a little like stuffed goodie bags – but maybe that’s just because I’m a very associative person.
Here’s what it looked like being sent off.
