The Three Muses Challenge - Mail Art


I chose to design an art envelope for my sample picture.  The image of the lady is from Wikimedia Commons (copyright free).  The balloons are from Createwing Designs and the background and leaves from After Five Designs.  The old Australian stamp was Googled.  Two shillings and sixpence!!  We have had decimal currency for almost 50 years.  Apologies to my English friends for playing around with place names and addresses.  I never cease to be fascinated with the quaint names of villages and towns in the UK.

  3. Lovely, vibrant art, Marie. Is there such a place as Mouthwash? Hmm...a bit of whimsy there, too! But the woman is really a beautiful choice!
