John Neal Envelope Contest 2018

Date: March 29, 2018
Modified: June 13, 2018

John Neal Books put out an envelope  contest, and I really wanted to enter it. We were given 4 ways we could enter the contest. I used 3 of them and as it turns out, one of them was chosen to be published in the next Bound and Lettered magazine - issue #15.4

I'm so thrilled...

And I have just been informed the other two envelopes will make it in one of their issues. Sheesh.

all the lettering on these envelopes stems from the recent classes I've been taking taught by Kerri Forster.
