To create this slide mailer, I began by experimenting with texture. Several attempts later, I found an interesting technique in priming the mailer with gesso and applying stamped kraft tissue over it. In a happy accident, the ink also changed color slightly the more I played with the surface of the mailer, creating an interesting effect.
