Welcome

Welcome! Artfully Musing is a blog dedicated to sharing art and the techniques and products used. I'll be showcasing collage, altered and mixed media art as well as miniature. I hope you'll check back often and are inspired. Thanks for visiting! Laura

NOTICE: AlphaStamps has moved to a new website. Unfortunately, I was not aware the product links in my blog posts would not forward to the products on the new website. This has affected both the links in the posts and my Collage Sheet & Digital Image Set Catalogs. I ask for your patience while I work to fix the links. I’ll be fixing the newest posts first working back in time. Lastly, I’ll fix the catalogs. In the meantime, if you encounter broken links and need to finding something you can either use the name of the product to search the new AlphaStamps.net site or you can email me using the “Email Me” button at the top of the left column of the blog and I will do what I can to help.

Mail Art

I made one of these envelopes for each of the girls in the Creative Team.  I started by adding shades of yellows and browns to the blank envelope using Ranger Distress Inks.  Next, I stamped branches, grasses and birds.  I used metallic paints to add flowers, leaves and to color the grass.  Lastly I glued on the image of the woman and the butterflies.   The swirl in the center is just where I digitally blurred the address.

Very cool......I especially love the swirled address...LOL

Did you make each envelope the same, or are they all different?
