DLP Challenges: Week 3 (catching up)

I'm playing catchup on the Documented Life Project.  The challenge for Week 3 is here if you are new to this process or want to play along.

January 12 Challenge (Week Three) – include an envelope on your project.

Here is the page that I created for this challenge.


I put two quotes on the page. One is:

"Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History"

And inside the envelope, it says:

"I am currently unsupervised. The possibilities are endless!!" – from a stamp set by Dyan Reaveley.

I used a ledger paper with a resist design on it, and collaged, painted stamped and inked around the edges.

Then I took apart a corrugated black envelope with a clear window and attached it to the page both with some 3-in-1 adhesive from Beacon and a little washi tape, just for fun.  Inside of this I place a small pieces of painted canvas with a metal frame on it.  Over this, I attached the interior quote.  Finally, I brushed a little white chalkboard paint marker over the textured envelope.

I adhered a transparency with a gold foiled design over the window opening in the envelope.

Lastly, I put a little bit of 'bling' on the page, in the form of a small pewter heart charm, hanging from the envelope string.

I'm getting caught up! Are you playing along yet?
