I was recently involved in a picture envelope swap with a lot of the girls who took The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course with me. The designs were then put into a directory which you can find if you click on 'The little white book of surface pattern designers' in the top right corner of my blog =) Since then I have been drawing patterns on all of my envelopes! I'd love to make this into a project but am trying to get my head around a way of going about it. It would be lovely to post images of patterned envelopes I send to people and showcase ones that are sent back! Once I have figured out what this project will consist of I will tell you all!
As for now here are a few of the most recent envelopes I have sent, One to Rachael Taylor as a thank you because I won a competition of hers and she sent me some lovely prizes! Rachaels Designs are bright and bold so I went bright and bold with this pattern.
one to Tamsin Seed of Studio Seed who I also won a competition from and she sent me some beautiful prizes too!
And this one went to a family friend as a thank you for some Christmas presents she sent.
So seeing as though I have this designing obsession is there anyone else who would like to receive a little surprise in their mailbox?? Please leave a comment below! Maybe I should try and collect mailart from around the world, one from each country and I'll always send one in return! If anyone has any suggestions as to how I should go about this then I'd be happy to hear them!
