The Mystery Envelope Project #4

One of the things I really enjoy doing is to work with a limited selection of supplies and I have come up with a continuing project I do called the "Mystery Envelope Project". This term was the name of a swap I participated in once. I now refer to these random envelope projects by the same name.

This envelope of "stuff" was sent to me as a RAK by Joan. I decided to start Mystery Envelope Project #4 with the contents. First I sat down and sorted all the items into colours to see what I had to work with. Lots of blues and vintage text/paper stuff. Nothing came to me from this arrangement so, next, I grouped the stuff together by like items and BINGO! I had a pile of old Christmas and Greeting cards. An idea was born and painting day began!

So what I did was paint both sides of all the cards tearing open a few cards that were double folded. When dry I sewed them into a signature, added a silver bell that happened to be laying on my table and an Art Journal is now ready to be filled!
