Creative "Something" Day Twenty-Six


Today's card is made from Tyvek...you know the paperish/plastic-ish material that mailing envelopes like those used by FedEx are made of? It really is both paper and plastic...and if you put a little water on it before you start -- it will absorb acrylic paint where it is paper -- and resist it where the little threads of plastic are...which makes for a kind of tie-dyed effect when you wipe the paint off... Just another idea to "re-use" those envelopes rather than put them in a landfill. Hope you are off to a great last day of January!
