Me Time Messages

Clare Lloyd who is the organizer of the junk journaling 2014 group has also created a 6 week workshop called Me Time Messages, for more info you can visit her blog over here.
In the workshop we will be transforming 6 envelopes.
For the first week we are takeling our largest envelop in which all the others will fit.

step 1 was to add some masking tape, I rather felt like adding some dry wall tape

step 2 was to gesso the envelop, as this was already a white envelop I skipped this step.
Step 3 : add 2-tone colour: I used 2 tints of turquoise, however you couldn't see the 2 tones after applying so I added some pearlescent paint to give it some definition.

Step 4 was to add some stamping with archival ink, I used Stazon as I don't own any archival ones. I used stamps I bought earlier that day, I must say I am pleased with the new aquisitions

The following steps were: 
  • add washi tape check
  • add a stencil to highlight the washi tape check
  • add a little more touches of paint check
  • add a picture/drawing... of yourself, I gave this a bit of a twist as I added a butterfly: I love butterflies and I like to be as free, distinguished and elegant as one.
  • Add the name of the workshop: for this I used some scrabble tiles
So without further ado here is my finished envelop

Can't wait to start the next assignement.
