My first attempt at an Altered Slide mailer.




I created this for my best friend Jane (AKA JustJane) in return for a beautiful one that she sent to me. It so inspired me that I just had to have a go.
I used the textured stamping technique on the front then painted it blue and silver and embossed it with silver embossing powder, I copied Jane's idea of using an altered jigsaw piece to embellish it with, to which I had attached a fairy charm , along with some fibers to which I attached some little crystal beads.
inside I put an image of a fairy and stamped the word Dreams on the inside flap. I really enjoyed doing this.
Jane got me the slide mailers and sent them to me by post, so I shall be working on some more before long.
