I liked the idea of a neat and tidy envelope spilling messy contents all over the place.
Envelopes are meant to contain, but sometimes they just can’t hold it in anymore.
The envelope is made from a magazine image that I altered with solvent, then painted with transparent gold paint. The button is not real – it’s a sticker.
