The Three Muses - Mail Art




Hi,

Just had to watch Midsummer Murders before I put this on my blog........ooh it was thrilling, just love that programme.

I am really inspired by the wonderful creative artists who have submitted their Mail Art to The Three Muses, oh wow you have to see them. This is my first attempt at making one of these. I made my own envelope as the pack of ones I use for letters were not of the best quality. The Ladies were cut out from wrapping paper and gessoed. The background I watercoloured and lightly gessoed over it, then I stamped some scrolls leaving room for the address and a stamp.
Had just the greatest fun making it and long to make some more.

Thank you for popping in and for all your wonderful support and encouragement, and thank you Astrid for your great advice.
Take care, Annette x

Netty, I truley love this! It's gorgeous.

I am a big fan of Midsummer Murders (it's called something else here), but it's not on very often here and they're all repeats.
