Under the Sea
(Click on a fish to see the details!)
It just so happened that the stars aligned perfectly this week. The Three Muses issued a challenge to create a piece of mail art - in other words, any type of art that can be mailed or has something to do with mail. And, serendipitously, one of my art group's challenges was to create an altered envelope.
This envelope began with a manila envelope base and a piece of artist's paper from one of my older Somerset Studio magazines. After sizing, printing and trimming all of my images (many from Moonlight Journey), they were glued into position and further enhanced with Prismacolor pencils, Neocolor II's and watercolors. Shadows were added with a woodless graphite pencil and smudged for a soft effect, and tiny bubbles were added with a white gel pen.
