Once again I am inspired by so many envelope artists and I just can't resist playing too. I'm always drawn to collage art, so I tried that first with this envelope.
This is shamefully a very cheap envelope. **GASP** But it bothers me not at all. With my luck, if it were an expensive quality envelope, it would have ended up in the trash.
That was fun, and I wanted to decorate another envelope. I wanted to get some more use out of those largish face stamps I bought. I thought this one would be a struggle since it's just the facial features and it's been collecting dust because of that. However, I got inspired and this is the result.
This one is a little better quality paper.
Scanning does nothing for the bling I added to this envelope. Extra ounce postage leaves a lot to be desired too. George Washington is it. We sure could use some variety in the 20cent stamp category...or even in the 66cent category. Again, one choice...butterfly.
I like how she went and wanted to have another go at her in that style. This is that result...back to the cheap envies. It turns out I love them. I even like how the inside security design works into the outside design.
I just can't seem to get enough. This one came next.
It seems I'm kinda hung up on these colors for now. I must branch out. And sometimes I get the envie a little too wet and they dry a tad lumpy. I see it as a beauty of the beast. **GASP**
The square envelope has been mailed out. Now I just need to figure out where I can mail the others to. Any ideas?
Wishing everyone a Good Mail Day!
Wow Annie , those are just beautiful. I love the soft colors.
Annie those are wonderful envelopes! I like the square one the best, I suppose because I like her face and the "whatever you call it" that you put around her in the blue, lol. But they are all just so much fun.
I love to see your paper art because it is so different, it's got a clarity and a delicate, considered use of colour, lots to look at but uncluttered.
I like the way you have given the face ladies a new hairdo, or is it a tiara?
We want more!
Well I can certainly think of an idea where "Calendar Girl" aka 'Marking Time' could be mailed......she'd be very happy to make the swift journey to Sac....just saying :) Love what you're doing with these and the colors are very soft and girly.
These are such fun. If you have not mailed out the "lumpy" two faces I would be very happy to give them a good home. I see the other three are definitely spoken for. It is good to see you having fun and experimenting with arty envelopes. Creative Joyful Bliss Dear...
Wow, girl, you were on a roll! Too bad you stopped, Lord knows what you could have produced that day! Love each one of them.......they are all beauties in their own right! I am partial to Sissy though! lol
I just watched "The Letter Writer" last night, and spreading enjoyment is what happens when some lucky soul receives one of these beautiful creations. A gift of your time.
Well I for one love the colors you used. Your face envelopes are fabulous and I really like the one with the two ladies - Heck, I really they they are all smashing!
I agree with your other commenters....they are all lovely! I imagine they will spread joy as they travel around, and then arrive at their destinations. Beautiful!
These are all truly beautiful!!! ANd i love the Shabby Chic color pallet! so beautiful! I hope to see more of these in the future!!!
Annie just checking does it still say no-reply now?
I have no-idea i looked but don't see where to change it :( Computers hate me!!
I just checked this out and am so impresses. Is there a reference to how to do these? They are paper, right?
Annie... these are beautiful...a true testament to your art skill. Can you tell me what kind of paints/inks you are using? Stamps?
