Art Envelopes

This is the latest challenge from the Three Muses… yes, it’s that time of the week again! Talk about propitious – I actually have an envelope ready for stuffing, to send off to an arty friend so I feel perfectly justified in entering this gaudy, hurly-burly, padded “Art” envelope!!

My kinda mail...!!

Apart from the Milano postage stamp (by Crafty Individuals), all the other (silhouette) stamps are by Ria Vaneman – the last ones she designed before selling on her artstamp line… I am so lucky to have them! Michelle Ward still has the old scraped paint influence over me at the moment and all the ‘muckiness’ is pure me!!

I received this very arty envelope recently from Bev – and what a beauty it is…

Cutie Patootie!!

How cute is that??? 🙂

"You've got mail!"

That says it all, doesn’t it?!! Wouldn’t it be great if the utilities companies (for instance), got some creative soul – maybe in their offices – to design a more cheerful envelope?  It would make receiving the bill itself far more pleasant and we could use the pretty envies in our artwork, making it greener!

Should I email them and suggest myself, d’you think?!! 😉

    My oh my – I haven’t been able to visit for a while, and have so missed your stunning work.

    Nothing to look at on my blog – too much going on, but I hope to get messy and inky in the next week or two.

  4. Absolutely fantastic 🙂

  5. What a stunner! It should put the postie in a good mopdd when he delivers it! Fantastic.xx

  6. Excuse my typos! That should be mood of course.xx

  7. They all are absolutely gorgeous

  8. Hey Rosie – have you noticed that everything Bev does has “attitood”? That’s our Bev.
    Seriously, your envelope is gobsmackingly gorgeous – so vibrant and full of colour and, yes, pizzazz. I love it!!
    (There is a comment on my blog from “Rosie” but, when I click on it, another person’s blog comes up. I have no idea what is going on there but, if it was you who left the comment I thank you!!).
    I envy the lucky person who is going to receive your “eye-full” in the mail.

    Rosie, you will certainly brighten up someone’s day with this delicious and most colourful decorated envie my friend. Gorgeous.

    Bev’s envelope to you is such fun too.

  11. Beautiful, bright and edgy…I love em!

  12. Rosie — Your envelope is absolutely a feast for the eyes, a symphony of color! I love it…..and thanks for doing PR for me, by the way. You are too kind!

  13. Wow …. your envelope will definately brighten up your friends day!!! They will LOVE it!

    The one you received is oh so funky! I think you should email the utility companies! Maybe we could get a petition going !!!!!!

  14. Definitely need more envelopes like this – I think it could be the new thing and just perfect for brightening up the Royal Mail sorting offices. Won’t they just be chuffed for something more interesting to look at, don’t you think?

  15. I adore your jazzy envelope and the ones you have received are great. x

  16. What great envelopes! Would the mailman want to part with them, tho? Wonderful art!

  17. Very colorful, Rosie, but I wouldn’t expect less from you. Love it. And the envelope from Bev is a scream!

  18. These are fantastic!

  19. Super envelopes! Anyone would be happy to get these in the mail.

  20. I love your envelope, Rosie. I can see Michelle’s influence!

  21. Hey Rosie,

    I’m up for a swap. My email is xoxoxoxoxo so you can send me your snail mail address. Don’t worry if I’m slow to respond – I’m away for the weekend.

    Please will you delete this message so not too many people get my email! Thanks – can’t wait!

  22. Great artwork, as usual, Rosie!
