Happy Mail From a Crafty Friend

Hey Sweeties,

We all get happy mail right?…Well, those of us that craft and exchange happy mail with others. Anyway. I was on my way to making something with the happy mail sent by a crafty friend and got stuck at the envelopes. I started recording by showing the happy mail and then moved on to the next part.

I was planning on using the envelopes to make a base like a masterboard. I was going to back it to make it stronger, then cut it up. Instead of backing it first and then using my gel press, I decided to use the plate first. And why did I do that. After covering it a little, I started rubbing paint in the blank spots. Its started looking like a waterfall and I said to myself, I can’t cut that. LOL. So I turned it over and painted the other side. Now, I have a two-sided envelope picture that’s hanging on my wall, that I can flip when I want to. Yeah. I look at it as I type this.

But it was fun soothing. This is the third beach scene I mentioned in a previous post. Not much thought went into this one though. It was just there. Some say it looks like the sky, I think it could pass for both. I do like how it turned out though. This painting thing is growing on me.
