Tea Bag Art

Hello everyone. I hope you are well.  I want to thank those of you who left such heartfelt comments about my Dad. It really meant so much to me during this very difficult time.
      I finally felt a little like crafting. I have spent a lot of time looking at Pinterest and saw some very interesting crafts. One was tea bag art. Since I love tea and am an avid tea drinker I had plenty of tea bags to use.
 I really love how turned out! I mounted my tea bag art piece on some handmade paper that has botanical pieces embedded in it ( no, I did not make the paper, it is some I have had for a while). Sorry about the tiny light flash on the flower, it is hard to take a photo when there is glass.
Here is an up close photo of my art piece. I wanted the jagged edges and ink distressed around them. I used a daisy stamp that I have and used water colors to paint it. I used fine tip ink markers in black and white for the dots and I hand stitched the french knots in the center of the daisy and stitched around the insides edge of the tea bag. I am very happy with how it turned out and plan to do more.
Hugs Pam

  3. This is something totally new to me, and it's really so interesting. Love the distressed staining and how awesome you were able to watercolor a daisy over the staining. Love the stitching & it looks so pretty done on the handmade paper. I'm so glad you are beginning to feel that crafting will restore a little 'happy' for you. Hugs & TFS

  4. Absolutely beautiful. Never heard of this before. I do love how it tirned out. The hand stitching really pops and I love how the edges frayed edges. Perfect wall hanging.

  5. Pam, this is gorgeous! I drink tea too but never realized you could make art of of those bags. I'll have to check on Pinterest and see some other samples. I love your work though. Just got home from Boston and a two day trip to visit the boys, put the final details on the rehearsal dinner for the May wedding, and go to a bridal shower for my son's bride. It was fast and furious but a lot of fun. Hope all is well with you!

  6. WOW this is so cool...never seen anything like it!!! Visiting you after ages and it feels good!!!
