Photocopied Images on Envelopes

Back:
Front:


For the first project, I photocopie images of myself and cut the pictures up to fit the envelopes shape. The return address is handwritten in bright colors, and the address of the receiver is typed, printed and put in place with clear tape. The back of the envelope also includes cut upsof the photocopied image. The envelope is sealed shut with handmade stickers I drew and colored. Inside the envelope is the another photocopied picture of the same image used for the envelope. None of the photos used for the project show my face or body in full.These will be sent to people I have lived with.

Glad you scanned both sides! It might be interesting to do a variation on this project where you create envelopes directly from the photocopies. It might be tricky to line the image up just right, but it would create a really nice, seamless envelope. Good job! Share your stamp with us, when you have it ready!
