A Special Envie

Collaged & Stitched Envelope
(Click to see the details!)

 A Closer Look!


 

It's going to be difficult to part with my art doll . . . but I will have to send her to a new home soon. She has to travel in high style, so I decided to create a special package for her journey.

This envie was highly influenced by Roben-Marie Smith's envelopes created from file folders. I've used watercolor crayons with clear gesso, spray inks, rubber stamps, paint and even a piece of tie-dyed duck tape. If you'd like to see some of Roben-Marie's fabulous (and very sturdy) file folder envelopes, you can click here to see her blog post.

May your day be blessed with creative joy!

Terri - I was visiting last night when my internet went down again but had to get over here again to tell you how crazy beautiful your doll and this envelope both are.
I think you've convinced me through seeing this envelope that this orange-tangerine-red is my current favorite color! It is so vibrant and passionate! I don't know who this is going to but they are SO LUCKY!

She has no choice, being the masterpiece that she is, to travel in anything but the best. And this fits the bill....

Love that quote you used, Terri!

Such a fun and creative imagination that lives within you!
