    Leonarda’s Security Envelopes and Acrylics, Due July 15

    Have you ever noticed the inside of security envelopes? I never did until the year long mixed media class I am taking had a class using these, and now, I am addicted! The patterns are beautiful and my "collection" is growing.

    For this swap, you will only use the following media: Acrylic paints and security envelope papers on a sturdy ATC base. Make 3 ATCs.

    You must use both media and must not use any other types.

    For the bonus to this swap, if you would like, send 3 extra atc size pieces of the envelope papers to swap with other players. I will do my best to give you three different patterns in return, but it depends what is sent in. These are just extra papers, nothing else.


    Standard size 2.5" x 3.5" on sturdy card stock.

    USA: send SASE. International enclose 1.00 for postage or 3 US forever stamps.

    Let’s grow our creativity and think outside the box!

    Please do your best work and make your cards unique to your own style.

    Here are a few examples of the security envelope linings I have:

    Crikey! You are right! I just went to our recycle bucket and pulled out four envelopes with different patterns. I find this idea intriguing but wouldn't the paints cover the patterns? Can you tell I'm not much of a painter? I guess I'm lurking until I figure out if this will work for me or not.

    I'm thinking even the windows could be used somehow.

    The patterns are beautiful! Most are black, some are blue, but I even have one that is red ink!
    This is not the typical “ cut out a picture and glue it to a background” swap. I guess you could say it’s more of a creative challenge!

    I started cutting my envelopes and my ideas started.... I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with! I even thought about using acrylics for background and the patterned paper on top.... hmmmmmm

    I love security envelopes! I've been hoarding them for years. I even have some green, an orange, a purple and a red. Mine get used for collage. I'm not much for acrylics so I'll just lurk and enjoy seeing what gets created.

    I get red envelopes from Target. One of our local cable companies has green. I dont have that company but I have seen it. Someone had to bring it into my food bank to prove their address. You should have seen me, I was just itching to ask for the green envelope. I did not, but I am sure I was twitching.

    I do gather we can use a tool like a paint brush to apply the acrylic. I even thought about painting on some rubber stamp. I plan to experiment, I hope I can come up with something decent.

    You have to apply the acrylic with something. Are you open to what that could be?

    So far, I'm thinking stencils or foam stamps, or a credit card, or ?

    Welcome everyone! I am so glad you have joined up.

    OF course you can use any tools you would like- paint brush, stencil, etc. I meant just use these two media on a sturdy atc card. The how is up to you!!
