I got a letter on a lonesome day

A letter is a living soul, it is so faithful an echo of the voice which speaks in it that sensitive spirits count it among love's richest treasures. Old Goriot -Balzac


Image Transfers made with Xylol/Xylene, available at hardware stores. I love the way this technique distorts the images. I feel like I'm trying to peek through a window or a hole in a wall or decades of dusty time. These images were used in a letter I sent to a friend, on the envelope and a package for a CD. Does anyone know if there is a copyright issue with transferring an image that is not yours? There probably is but I did lose a ton of detail in the transfer.

I haven't visited your blog in a long time, it looks great! I love all of your stuff. We have a blog of our own now too.

I recognize this letter! If you have questions about copyright I can try to answer them since I took the class.
