Last week I finally finished a project that has been on my mind for a long time.
It was August 2013,
that I joined the Marie Antionette Mail Art Group's
French General mini envelope swap.
The stack of beautifully embellished envelopes sat patiently for all this time.
.The goal was to create a book with those beautiful envelopes.
Fast forward to April's
French General ATC swap that I hosted.
Liz wrapped her ATCs in this beautiful French ticking fabric.
It was the absolute perfect piece to wrap my front and back covers!
Thanks Liz, how did you know!
The cover ATC is the one I created for an example of
"French General Style."
the envelopes are the perfect size to tuck the ATCs I received in our swap.
All of the works on the inside of the book are by different artists.
I also tucked in some of the lovelies that were gifted to me.
One artist made the envelope
and another the ATC.
Serendipity at its best!
The finished book is HUGE,
it doesn't come close to closing,
but that okay with me.
This is a true work of heARTs.
