Artsy address labels
I started by printing my address onto labels. Mine are 1" x 4" and I have printed 6 addresses on each label. I used a word processing program to lay them out and laser printed them. I am using this size of label because we bought LOTS of them for a couple of bucks at a garage sale years ago - they are plentiful and inexpensive!!
Once printed I apply watercolour to them in a variety of colours using a large watercolour brush. A person could just a easily sponge them with ink, rub them with chalk or colour them with pencils or crayons, etc!!!
Use what you have!! There are a wide variety of labels available so pick what suits you and use a word processor to organize your addresses and print the labels. Then, have some fun and make them pretty any colourful way you wish. They will be unique and the next time you make a batch experiment with a different colour medium or a different technique to make them all together different if you wish!! Just another way to be creative!!
