I can't believe I'm back again so soon. That's what becomes of being a football widow. I thought I would stop by and let you know what I've got on the boil ( pardon the pun).
Whilst checking out fellow bloggers art work I have learned that you can use tea bags (minus the tea) in mixed media and textile art. I have come across a very talented artist Kim Henkel who produces some beautiful art work using tea bags. You can see her work if you visit her blog Letting in the Light.
The tea bags that I use do not have tags and are shaped like pyramids and are not made from the same paper as the 'posh ones' lol. So I went out to get a box especially and today I steeped my first tea bag for the sole purpose of experimenting with something new. Whilst brown tea gives lovely sepia coloured patterns I thought I would try some fruit teas.
And there it is in all it's pink loveliness. It's now hanging in my airing cupboard to dry out and tomorrow I will open it up. I have to say that I'm really excited to see how it turns out. I'm not sure yet, what I'm going to put on it ,but I was thinking of making a little book using the tea bag paper for the pages. I have the cover already. It is a piece of fabric paper which I stamped some text on. I folded it in half and thought it would make a nice cover for a little book and it has been sitting on my work desk waiting to be worked on.
Well I will be back soon to let you know how I'm getting along with it.
Bye for now x
