Since I got back from vacation I've been wanting to get back in the studio.
Time and work have not been on my side...
Hubby was working, and I got to play a little bit!
I started with two pieces of scrap paper ,
added a messy layer of gesso,
then dabbed some distress paint on my craft sheet,
sprayed with a bit of water and pressed the paper into the colors.
I added some white gesso spatter, and I got to work embellishing.
Stamps, and bits pieces of die cuts I had laying around the table.
For the front I did the same as the back,
but I tried to keep a bit of a blank space where I will put the addresses and the stamp.
I then ran some tape runner around the three corners and taped them together,
Finally I finished off by sewing around the three edges for a fun finish.
I'm excited to be getting back to crafting,
and even more excited to getting back to Teaching!
I'll be teaching this class to my art group at the end of the month.
I hope you've enjoyed my envelope, and if you're in the phoenix area and are interested in the class you can find us on facebook under West Side Scrappy Diva's.
