I finished another envelope and was noting (again!) my desire to stitch more...It was my husband's birthday the week I did this spread, so I was able to add an appropriate stencil - found in the cake decorating aisle!
the previous spread but it was a hard act to follow when I wasn't feeling my best
I decided that I didn't like all the white background on my page, so I decided to add some spray through punchinella - this is the second page which I used to soak up the extra ink
and the left hand page was a little more interesting in places, and a little harder to read in others! Oh well - it's all learning. Overall I like it better than it was (sorry no photo of the plain white background)

Don't mind the effect though...just go with it. It's not as hard to read as the photo suggests
The other page needed a bit of flower power I thought, so I sprayed some ink on the page first, and added some flower doodling
I was working on my "me time messages project" - I remembered to print out and put in photos of the completed sides of envelope #4, but had to add envelope #5 as a flip out - like the different effects
Another birthday that week - I like taking photos of the kids with their present line up
Ended up with another colourful and "somewhat" arty spread.
