365 Mail Art Project: Weeks 38 & 39

Quite a few mail art pieces to share this week. I must be feeling inspired (or something).
Week 38 I really wanted to do something with my watercolour paints, so I made some envelopes using art paper and painted on a simple dots-and-stripe pattern. I was quite surprised by how they turned out, although I ended up only making four as they were seriously time-consuming.
I'd like to try this style again in future.

This week (week 39) I decided to use some of my own digital photography to make envelopes, then I prettied them up with either washi-tape and alphabet stickers, or just a splash of colour.
(FYI: The photos I printed using high quality 100gsm A4 paper, specifically designed for getting the best results from your pictures).
