I just finished this bit o' mail art and am really pleased with the way it turned out. I created it for the "Cover my Envelope!" swap on SwapBot.
Last week I came home from work one day and just felt the need for a little art therapy. The Muse was being irritatingly quiet so I decided to just get out some acrylics, stencils and envelopes and go to town.
|The top one is the one I arted up even more (above), but look at all of these other lovelies ready to hit the mailbox!|
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I had kind of forgotten about this decorated envelope swap I'd signed up for. When I looked at my sendee's 'likes' I noticed flowers were on there and remembered an art journal page I had done a long time ago where I'd draw a flower and then blacked out everything around it. I drew the flowers on my envelope but when it came time to black everything out I decided to go a different route and paint the flowers white. I thought I was done until I realized I had to decorate the entire back as well. I decided to go for something coordinating.
I love how it turned out! I hope my recipient likes it, too. :)
Happy Spring (and Easter or Passover)!
