I did this on the front of an envelope in gel-ink, a favorite guilty pleasure.
You know how everyone tells kids, “Wait until you get in to the real world, THEN you’ll see how easy you have it now”? This is a lie. I cringe when I hear parents share this bit of false wisdom with their offspring. I dreaded being a grown-up, I thought it was going to be scary and horrible, but let’s be honest, it’s the best. When as a child would I ever be allowed a huge box of envelopes and the freedom to scribble on them at will?
Since I’m a grown-up, like a true legit one, after I’m done behaving like a child and spreading envelopes with scribbles around me like a nest of leaves, I have to do some work and actually pull out my colors. Sigh. It’s a tough life.
