blogger test

i might have this figured out. first i scan the envelopes, cards, and letters. then i upload them to picasa. then from blogger, when i want to upload an image, it seems to be one easy click. we will have to see if this works on sept 19. this is not an envelope. but, it is a real letter that came in an envelope and it is cut out of tyvek. i'm not sure if i have shown any tyvek cutting, but it is a dreamy medium. tyvek is used to wrap houses before the siding is applied. it is also used for envelopes. the fed ex mailing envelopes are usually tyvek. it is very tough stuff and lots of fun to cut with an xacto knife.

  1. Tyvek that is smooth (like the envelopes the postal service and Fed Ex use) take acrylic paint beautifully, too! I've never done any cutting out of letters, but I may just have to give that a whirl! Thanks for sharing! Your envelopes and examples are SO much fun to look through!
