File folder

Hope you are enjoying the fantastic weather we're having.
I have signed up for Robenmarie Smiths fab 'Mixed media Mayhem' class. Roben shows us how to make a journal using tabbed file folders. She also teaches us how to make mailart with these folders. I picked up 50 tabbed folders from Staples, but I found the size (A/4) a bit big for my first attempt. So I cut this one from a sketch pad and it took me umteen layers of paint, sprays and gesso before I said enough is enough and stopped. I stitched the sides on my mini machine ( was to lazy to get out my main one - will do next time! ) and will stuff something in it and probably add it to a journal page. Next time I'd like to make a mailart folder, put something inside stitch across the top and mail it to someone!!
Thank you for stopping by, I'd love to have your feed back
hugs Joy xx
