7 fun things to send to your penpal

why hello there!

I have recently gotten into the hobby of penpaling. I was supposed to have only three, but now I have *ahem* seven.

Having a penpal (or more) Is an amazing way to make new friends and meet new people and learn about others lifestyles and cultures. Penpaling is also great for people that want to disconnect from online and go back to paper. Plus if you have really generous penpals you might even get goodies. (my favorite part) But don’t get your hopes up xD

So in today’s post, I will share with you guys a few things you can send to your penpals!

If you are looking for a penpal and have nowhere to look you can go to this awesome (and safe website) called globalpenfriends. Or you can comment down below that your interested and maybe someone else will reply and ask to be your penpal.

For right now I am closed for new penpals because I already have way tooo many. But I am open to being e-pals if you want.

But now, let’s get on to the post.

The first and most basic thing to put in your penpal letter is a letter.

Even if you only send a letter, you can jazz it up and make it cute and super special! Doodle, add quotes and use fancy fonts!

2. Send washi tape.

Washi tape is cute and adorable, and if your penpal is a crafty artsy person I am sure they would appreciate some. You can wrap it around a stick, tag or piece of paper.

3. Art

Art pieces are really cute and simple. Draw something your penpal loves like ducks or sunflowers.

4. Scraps

When it comes to penpaling, sending cute scraps of paper or extra washi and stuff Is great! You can use scraps to make collages and if your penpal is creative they will probably find a way to use it.

5. Candy, Tea, Snacks

Packaged objects like tea and candy are great and fun to send to your penpal. I always send my penpals tea bags so they can drink it while reading my letters!

6. envelope art

Envelopes can be transformed into beautiful masterpieces. I try and usually fail, but there are some really pretty things you can do!

7. Things your pen pals have mentioned

Has your penpal mentioned that they wanted pins? Maybe you can make one for them. Make thinks based on your penpals personality or things they like and want.

 

I hope this post helped! Thanks for reading!

❀Draw with Moi: pastel beans + trying to make stickers❀

why hello there!

❀greetings and salutations!❀

❀Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today I’m going to be doing a DRAW WITH MOI!❀

Let’s GET STARTED❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

First of all, I’m starting off with a BLANK PAGE. Thankfully Mr. Artists Block didn’t stop by for a visit, but time will tell. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (sadly I forgot to take a picture of the blank page)

 

So I took out most of my art supplies so I can have literally every shade I needed. I’m using my watercolors, Prismacolor pencils, and my ohuhu markers.

❀LET’S START DRAWING❀

So I’m forcing myself to draw more male beans (adorable male kiddos with fluffy hair to be exact) because I am not really good at drawing males so I just made a page to draw them all. So I’m starting off by making a sketchy circle with my yellow colored pencil.

le messy circle ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 

 

Now I’m adding what I call guidelines for the face and adding more shape to the face.

a beautiful anime style head

Now I am adding the neck and the shoulders. I am not that good at drawing shoulders, because whenever I draw shoulders, one shoulder is poking out in an awkward position and it just looks weird.

the shoulder got messed up

So, sadly the shoulders didn’t turn out that good. 😦 But it still is a pretty good drawing I suppose.

Oh dear, don’t cry smol bean!

ITS OKAY YOUR PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE! This is why I don’t usually critique my art in front of them, surprisingly, they have feelings too.

Alright So I drew a shirt, and This is what I call a headshot, I’m not drawing full bodies because that is EXTREMELY HARD. I usually accidentally give them curves because I’m so used to drawing girls.

SO I GAVE him FLOOFY HAIR!

BECAUSE HE’s A FLOOFY HAIRED BEAN!!(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I kind of messed up the face but that’s okay I guess!

Sadly the camera’s battery died so I wasn’t able to photograph the rest of my drawings drawing process, BUT YOU CAN STILL ADMIRE THE BEANS because after it was done charging I took some pictures of them.

I gave all of them cat ears because it’s super adorable.

Put masking tape over it so the paper would be glossy.

Last, of all, I decided to draw a bean that wasn’t so pastel.

Ahem, this is why I don’t draw full body males because I always accidentally add a curve XD.
