Watercolor on Tea Bags
Hope you are enjoying your weekend, especially
if this is a long weekend for you!
It seems like I've been drinking a lot of tea lately, so I
thought it was time to get out my tea bags
and get creative!
This is a mixed-media piece on watercolor paper.
First, I tore pieces of the tea bags and glued them to the
watercolor paper to start my background.
This is another piece I started just today where I decided to use
a rubber stamp before applying the tea bags for added interest.
I love the color and texture the tea bags create.
After the background was dry, I started to sketch out my design.
The dragonfly is a rubber stamp.
Finally, a little simple hand stitching on linen for added texture.
The light was so beautiful and inviting on my desk today.
Oh, and don't you just love my new pencil box I got at the
second-hand store for 97 cents?
What creative things have you been doing?
Remembering the men and women who died while serving in the
United States Armed Forces this Memorial Day.
