Ombre Auras Mail Art

It's been a long time since I've done anything 'artfully' creative.  I've been so busy with other type of creative endevours like cleaning out my shed (where, among other things, a lot of my larger supplies are kept), setting up my own studio, and creating garden beds in my yard.

I have quite a collection of cardless envelopes, so 'mail art' was the perfect project to get back-in-the-saddle with.  

I decided to to a bit of zentangling since I really need to get some practice in.  My favorite is the Auraknot so I went with that.  When I finished the Auraknot I thought it would be fun to give it its own 'aura'.  

The colors I used were inspired by a resent incredible sunset.  I colored it with markers, as that is what I have on hand.  


  1. Great take on the challenge, I love to decorate the outside of the envelope. Thanks for playing with us at TIOT.

  3. I know this may sound silly but I cannot zentangle. I try and it never turns out looking anything like I imagined. Guess I am just not neat enough despite my name.
    Love what you have done to your envelope and what a lovely idea to choose those colours.
    Thanks for joining us at Artful Times, Hugs, Neet x

  4. So beautiful mail art! I love the design and the colors.
    Thank you for joining us at TIOT.

  5. I can't zentangle it all ends up silly and not consistent, but yours is great, love the outside the best and the colours you have used.
