Sissy Art...

...is not art created by sissies.  It's art created with Sissy...a large rubber stamp.  And I'm loving the challenge of working  with her!
 
I've mentioned previously that I first saw the use of this stamp on Renee's blog, Bolton House .  Renee also helped me to find my own Sissy stamp.  Once she arrived, we decided to trade Sissy Art.  Specifically envelopes.  Totally intimidating for me!  But quite an enjoyable challenge too.  This is the 10" X 13" envelope I created for Renee.
 
 
But sadly, Renee has not received her envelope.  Sissy was either kidnapped or just plain lost her way.  I tried so hard to make a swap-worthy envelope, so I hope it is somewhere being enjoyed.

I couldn't wait to start again on another envelope.  Before sending off Renee's envelope, I photocopied it for something to stuff into an envelope to Carol.  I wrote my note to Carol right on the photocopy around the design.  This triggered an idea for another Sissy envelope.  So this 9"X12" Sissy envelope went to Carol. 

 
 
I'll never know if anyone between myself in California and Carol in Wisconsin read the letter, but most humans have an irresistible nosey curious nature about them, so I hope it was enjoyed across the land. 

It was awfully fun creating both those envelopes.  I feel a need to make more!

Maybe Sissy decided to take a trip around the world, before stopping at her final destination , Renee's!!
I know that you make people smile whenever we see ANY of your art!! So many postmen/ladies have been smiling when they see your envelopes passing through their hands.
I just love how you put your images together! You are an amazing artist! I look at my sweet Brown Eyed Susan and smile :)

They are sure beautiful. Hopefully it will turn up later. I've had some mail that I thought got lost eventually turn up. At least you took photos so you share those.

Maybe Sissy is merely on a grand tour of every post office building in the states so that everyone can enjoy your beautiful art. Fabulous envelopes! Happy Creative Hearts Dear...

Beautiful Sissy with such beautiful flowers in her hair. And two posts in two days - a treat for us.

Renee said...

I hope whoever kidnapped my Sissy read the note and felt guilty. I haven't decided yet if the picture you sent me of her will be on a milk carton or a wanted poster at the Post Office!
Cute post!! :-) Renee

I can certainly see why someone would want to kidnap her. She is stunning! My favorite is the second one with the brighter flowers. You are a fantastic artist. Hope your first Sissy turns up eventually.

Gorgeous! I bet Sissy has just been delayed because every postman and postwoman has taken the time to admire her.....

Cynthia said...

So sad that Sissy has lost her way. Perhaps she will still turn up. I'm having fun catching up on all the posts I've missed. You are doing some amazing things.
