Sometimes the projects I have started do not want to end. Seems like I so forceless or too lazy, but I have a lot of stuff to finish and show you, but can’t complete them.
And there was the same problem with this letter and video. I was making this folder on live stream in my instagram. Next day I finished the decoration and recorded the video, made photographs and that’s all, the work stopped. I tortured myself, editing the video, rerendered it for many times, in the end everything lasted almost 2 months.
I have a feeling that my videos are becoming too similar to each other and it’s boring to watch them, I’m thinking how to make next videos.
The result of my torment can be seen here and, please, say me in the comments (on Youtube) that everything is not so bad. At such times, support is really needed.
P.S. Just think that photos are still beautiful.

One of my favorite materials for writing is a vellum. Transparent sheets give a lightness to the letter view. I use the vellum in snail mail decorations quite often. I make flipbook’s pockets, envelopes, use vellum for packing and even for writing letters on it.
There was an article about choosing vellum for letters, and now I’m going to give you another one idea for using vellum and the way to decorate it.
The trick works on the transparency of vellum. Obviously, that the text of the letter we can write only on one side, but this does not mean that we can not use the reverse side for the decor.
And if the use of stickers and decorative tapes here is meaningless, the drawings and transfer tattoos are very suitable. The transparency of the vellum will allow us to see the image, but it will not hide the text, it wouldn’t interfere reading.
As an example, you see my work. I performed it live on my instagram.
For the drawing I took white (tempera), you can use acrylic or gouache. The white drawing under the text does not prevent reading, but enhances the visibility of the text, you can easily draw leaves, flowers or frosty patterns. In my case, these are branches, I repeated the idea of the envelope.
The important point is when working with a tracing paper, you shouldn’t make a pencil sketch, the paint will hide the pencil from the side of the drawing, but it will be visible where the text is. The second tip is to work with a practically dry brush. The vellum is not intended for painting and a large amount of water can spoil the shape of the sheet (and can damage the text). You can add other colors, but do not get carried away with too active painting, the drawing should remain in the background, to read the letter easy.
Some more adeas for backgroung: to make a pencil drawing, to use color pencils, above I mentioned transfer pictures. Or maybe you have your own ideas on this topic? Share ideas in your instagram with a link to me and I will tell about them in my profile, the most interesting will be on the site.

The beginning of May is my favourite time of the year. I love it even more than winter frost. It’s the time of first green leaves, first flowers. Trees are hurry to bloom, this period is very beautiful and short in Moscow.
As it became warm I can’t stay home. I’m walking as much as possible, to get enough sun, enough spring. We had a short trip to a village, had some meat cooked on fire. I made my first walks in the dress and I was so missing my sandales.
However, my projects had stopped. Can’t finish my last video, didn’t update my shop for long, some mails are waiting long for a reply. I have to return to my work and finish everything I started. But while I’m searching for myself take a look to these spring photos I made.

Some time ago we (me and The Bird) saw this photo, which tells about a postcard swap between two cats and decided to try to make something like this.





I and Lala made the first postcard, using the watercolors to make a pawprint of Lala's write paw. And the answer was not long in coming ^^ We've got this admirable postcard made of Eshka's paws scan.
The first photo report is here.
To be continued..

Sometimes I make orders on Aliexpress, and I know how it is difficult to make a decision. I made this article to show you some links I really tried, and I will add my own comments for every product. And you could see the unpacking process in my insta-stories.

Envelopes with a deer, 10 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/EIaauBa
Beautiful and minimalistic. They was a little crumbles, but I still can use them.

Mini notebooks, 4 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/EAuNz3v
Very beautiful covers, paper inside is not the best, but they are small and you can take them everywhere.

Vintage stamp-stickers 96 pieces (6x16) http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/JQjMrfQ
My favourite product. I love to use them in envelope and postcard decorations.

Cute cat stickers, 3 boxes (120 pieces) http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/jMR3niY
Adorable, high quality, just in love with them.

Paper tapes, 5 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/2b6YfiM
Not really sticky, but I love their delicate colors. Probably I will use them for my planner.

The parcel was sent quickly and without mistakes, every position was in separate plastic bag. I just advise the seller to put some cardboard in bag with envelopes, too keep their form.
