Tea Bag Art

I did this today while my papier mache figure is drying. I allowed the tea stains on the tea bag paper to give me the idea for what to paint. This 3"x5" image reminds me of early spring weeds popping up where I walk each day. The tiny dark specks are actual ground tea. The more reddish colors came from a Tangerine-Orange herbal bag, my new favorite tea!

  1. Okay, this is simply beautiful. I love the bright green against the browns and earth tones. The textures are beautiful.

    Shame on you. Now I have to go look up how to use teabags in art. And I was supposed to keep working on ravioli today. ;-)

    Seriously, thank you for sharing.

  3. Cool! They remind me of Iris, or Siberian Iris. This is such pretty art. The grounds give it a special effect too.

  4. Oh, I love this. I drink tea all day long, I must do something with those bags one day.

  7. Love the texture and your painting! You have lots of things going on-and I love that...I mean as far as using different mediums. That shows how creative you are.

  8. Barbara! I've been having great fun here catching up on your beautiful art! You've been spinning and knitting, molding and painting and even tea-bagging. Have always loved your endless wealth of ideas and look forward to seeing more and more. I've finally figured out how to get the daily blog updates I'd not seen for a year or so.

    It reads as if you are having a bit of an issue with your hands? I hope what ever it is, it resolves soon. We crafters are tough on our hands.

    Hugs, Angela
