Petits collages

[Envelope art available on eBay]
I love old envelopes. They have history and mystery, and my way of preserving them is to make small collages.
Fifty years from now, will an envelope I addressed end up in someone's collection as an antique? I hope so.


  1. O, what a cool post Colette. These are just gorgeous!

  2. I love these too Colette. I collect envelopes and postcards that have been 'postally used', especially if they have interesting handwriting, cryptic messages, snippets of history. Thanks for sharing these:)

  4. I love old envelopes too, and those collages look darling!
    Letter writing is a lost art, which makes those even more special!

  6. Excellent work here on this! I just love how you did them. What materials did you use to collage with? I see rubber stamps and ephemera pasted on... any other interesting little tidbits?
