Fall's Gift

Wishing you a peace-filled fall.

These painted, stamped and embellished envelopes should have been in the mail during the month of August.  They'll be in the mail first thing today!  I applied the same painting techniques that I use on my tags.  I wasn't sure how well the thin paper would hold up to acrylic layers but they held up fine and I like the soft texture the paper developed when the paint dried.  For those who have taken my classes, try painting on envelopes to see what I mean.  You may not want to part with these envelopes but they make great partners for arted up tags or cards you send out.  By the way, I've started painting my own faces and the two models below are samples.  I have a long way to go but I'm pleased with what I've done so far.  Practice makes perfect, practice makes perfect, practice makes perfect.  I don't know how many times I typed that in Typing 1 but in my case, practice makes it almost perfect for me.  
Yesterday Penny and I received a package in the mail from my friend Carolee.  She has taken several of my classes and knows all about Penny.  shy smile.
I'll have to wait for Penny to grow a little more before I can read this exciting book.  I'm thinking of other titles to start getting now!  Thanks Carolee!  This book has a great story line.  It's about a little girl (Penny) whose grandma is an artist (BIG HA!) and her grandma lives in the kind of building I could see myself living in if I didn't have a house!  The author (Devon Kinch) and Carolee, nailed it!  
Fall is off to a great start.  Enjoy the peace it brings.
