My first attempt at decorating an envelope!

It's not too bad considering I haven't attempted to decorate an envelope since I was 8 or 9 and that was by drawing a princess, in crayon, on the back of a letter I sent to my grandparents.

I feel like it's unfinished but don't know what else to do with it. I can see already that my obsession with straight lines and even edges needs to go but I'm not sure how to squelch that part of myself.

I'll look at it again later tonight or tomorrow and perhaps I'll have inspiration to add more to it. In the meantime, I'm okay with it.

I think.

    1. Aww, thanks Mrs. Duffy! It's resting now under some heavy books. I hope that flattens the few little ripples it has. If not, well.... I'm sending it anyway! :)

      I still think it needs something but I'm not sure what.

  2. Good start! I'm venturing into more decorating too. We'll fumble through together!

    1. Thanks, T! I had a lot of fun doing it and that surely counts for something. ;) I mailed the letter this morning after deciding not to do any more to it. I was afraid I'd overdo but really...can one overdo? I don't know... anyway, it's gone and I hope the recipient likes it. :::bites nails in anticipation::: ;P
