Pour yourself an extra cup of tea and use it in your project. In your cup you could dye lace, ribbon, wood, paper and flowers, or use it to create splashes or cup rings on your project. And don't just limit yourself to "ordinary tea" - there's green tea, yellow tea, black tea, herbal teas and fruit teas - whatever you've got in your cup! Just remember to ensure that you create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.
I had super fun making my project, here it is:
The two envelopes were simply slotted into each other as you can see below:
I then gathered some vintage style papers, mostly digital downloads from various Etsy shops and had fun creating the cover, inside pages and ephemera. I'll let the photos tell the story:
The lace at the bottom was also dyed in the same cup of tea
Next I created and envelope that will be tucked inside one of the pockets and will be filled with little tags and other ephemera, all using tea dyed paper.
The front of the envelope
And here finally is a closer look at some of the ephemera and tags.
Well, that's it from me for now, I am usually more of a coffee drinker, but had great fun using my tea in this way. Thank you Jennie for this great challenge! And of course, like always, do make sure to check out the fabulous projects my teamies have created, hopefully you will feel inspired to brew a cuppa or two and join us for the challenge!
Thanks for visiting here today. I'll be on holiday in Germany when this post goes live, and I very much hope you will have a good summer as well. And if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, well then you know that Spring will soon be around the corner...
