#ArtJournalPages from the Past

Alright, so I probably don't  exercise tremendous grammatical skill when I title a post beginning with a hashtag. So consider this a drive-by post if you will. You know? Very carefree and casual. This morning in my studio working on a product idea I passed these pages in one of my art journals and they caught my eye.

Thought I'd share. A glance at a colorful page that made me smile.

The next pages Are in a finished journal and although they aren't filled with the words I had anticipated I consider then complete. 

This one may get some words some day....I am tempted by the little blackboard spot on the bottom and the circles...okay never mind. Back to work. 
Have a great day.

Envelope Art

Well it has been awhile since I played with stamping envelopes. I was asked by a friend to donate a set to a PTO fundraiser. It got me going in many different directions. I have always wanted to make many, many more. Below is the set I gave to the donation. 

And while I was at it I stamped a set for a male friend's birthday. I think they look masculine enough.

And this one was really a bit funky. It has an interesting pattern movement. I don't use this stamp often....time to change that.

And an experiment with a pink pastel stamped butterfly. Oh, a whole series of these would be lovely in different colors. 
Here is my crow in the another flower field, I chose to really pack in the detail, so.......
I added more stamping.
And the following three sets were part of the Mother's Day gift I sent to my Mom. I really love the purple flowers.

And while we're at it here are some stamped manila envelope mailers. 
Check out my Flickr album with many more decorated envelopes. Below are some images from the collaged envelopes of mine that appeared in Jane Davies' book Collage Journeys.
 Definitely more than just stamped.

Thanks for stopping by. Please feel free to share or follow.
