Gothic Arches - Correspondence
This is my arch for this week's Gothic Arches challenge where this week the challenge is by Louise Granlund with a theme of "correspondence". Of course I first wanted to try adding a tag in there somewhere in honor of Louise's Tag Tuesday challenge ;-), but I had another idea instead and made vintage looking envelopes using blank old book pages. They look so wonderfully worn because the paper kind of cracked with folding into an envelope shape and made a believable vintage look. Do you know the feeling you get if you find a stack of old letters wrapped in ribbon at a flea market or antique store? You can imagine how they were lovingly saved in a box or drawer and read over and over again - I love the glimpse you get into someone's life that way - such a difference from the emails that are sent now.
