G'day! It's time for our new LESSology challenge. Have you ever decorated an envelope?
Or maybe it's something you like doing? Either way, we'd love you see your take:)


Now, I know you won't be freaked out by me starting a Christmas project.... and I wanted to go TOTALLY recyclable this time round. So I found an old K-Mart sales 'junk mail' catalogue. Decided I'd do an image transfer of this Chrissy tree.


Ooops! Didn't work....paper too thin..so changed tack, & decided on a mosaic idea. I layered lots of little bits of paper. A bit fiddly, but fun! Three layers later:


I found another star to pop on this one. 
Fussy cut a tiny deer out & added him:


Cut my 'to' out of this:


And cut some baubles from these. But I backed 'em onto cardboard to make them a bit easier to cut:


And finally, the chevron placemats looked like washi tape to me!


Somewhere in there, I thought about Klimt...& whilst the glue was still wet on the tree, tossed on some embossing powder in gold glitter. Then added some Inka Gold. So, here's what it looks like all decorated up:

 Oh! I added glitter to the baubles. Of course ;)

 And some stamping on my 'washi'!!

The back I also added some 'faux' washi & that's about all:

I'm sorry for all the photos....but I was so excited to get the brain thinking about different ways of using junk mail, giggles;) Thanks for looking & we'd love to see your prettied-up envelopes for our LESSOLOGY challenge:)

Cheers for now ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
