Envelope Art

First foray into envelope art! It all began with Art and Soul Virginia, May 2007. One of my classes was Leighanna Light's Ultimate Passion Book. I learned fabulous techniques from this talented and generous teacher. Leighanna painted each participants envelope which held instructions and collage supplies for the class. Each student received an invitation to join an envelope round robin so these beautifully painted envie's could live on! About 10 of us signed up and communicated via our "thingmakers" yahoo group. Being new to altering envies, I started out small, as you can see in the above photos. I used my favorite anatomical heart gel transfer on the front, and a fusion collaged heart on the back. After making the rounds, my completed envy is below. Leighanna opened the envy and used a duck tape backing. Very clever! I'm excited to say that I have signed up for Leighanna's Metal Treasure Deck at Art and Soul 2008.
