And they keep coming! Envelopes are arriving daily as we get closer to the Liberate Your Art postcard swap deadline. Just a little over two weeks until swap day! Woohoo!
Last week I shared what you can do with manila or kraft envelopes, but what about plain white? It’s the best canvas out there!
We’ll start with Jacques in the UK, who added a gorgeous drawing to the front of this envelope. Nothing plain about it!
Alison in Nevada added a simple geometric design, which is striking.
Continuing with the geometric theme, Dorothy in Oregon created this piece with pen, marker and little bit of collage. I love how the postmark breaks up the lines…
Some tape and a stencil, and you’ve just created mail art! I love the angle. From Bethany in Florida.
White envelopes are perfect for stamps and watercolor too, as Rinda in California shows us.
Let’s see… tea and letters to friends. Perfect! Imelda in California added this beautiful original piece into the corner of her white envelope.
But you don’t have to start with an envelope… You can use other papers to create your own envelopes too. Kate in Illinois adds some lovely lettering to an envelope made from printed paper. I love it!
Juana in Washington takes a page from the book… literally. It looks like a page from an old yearbook or graduation program that she has used as the envelope, and then painted/collaged from there. One of my favorites!
Finally, Lynne in Pennsylvania created her envelope from scratch. Painted, then folded and finished. Love it!
Bonus detail on the front…
Another week closer to the swap! It make me happy that all of the postcards will be liberated into the world soon. And sad, because I won’t be getting these awesome envelopes too much longer!
