Ooh, the first real casualty in The Diary Project. This envelope was so badly damaged that the Royal Mail sent it back in an 'oh dear, we're very sorry' plastic bag. I was completely amazed to discover that the contents are still inside.
I was quite gleeful when the envelope returned in this state - it's the most exciting thing to have happened on the project so far - but I was glad that you can still see part of the drawing. I was experimenting with a new technique on this envelope, I drew in white ink, let it dry and then went over it with coloured pencil, it gives an interesting 'cave painting' sort of look that doesn't scan very well.
