altered envelope


one of my new favorite things to do is to make altered envelopes.  i made this envelope a couple of weeks ago for a monthly challenge i host,  but after completing it i decided to keep it for myself.  i really rarely keep anything - remember that bookmark? - well i didn't keep that. i ended up trading it.  isn't it funny how our hearts and souls pour out on paper when we create?  sometimes it is hard to part with all that emotion that is in front of you.  i do find that usually within a week or two i can let go of the artwork i create that i am very fond of.  but every once in awhile there is a piece of work that still sings to me and then i just have to keep it for myself.

  2. So, so, so LOVELY, Roc! I'm glad you kept it for yourself. I find myself missing almost everything I send away. I actually felt sad to send my Art & Soul workshops away... the good news on those though is that I get them back!

    Awesome work, Roc :)
    xoxo, Shelly
