start to finish...

i tried a celestial seasonings holiday tea.

it has a nice bright pink stain.  i rinsed

one bag and the pink disappeared!   this

bag has a hint of a face shape... or is it me?

i drew a sketch with a mechanical pencil.

then went over it with a micron pen.

i used bits of paper i made from rice paper,

stamps and acrylic.

did a bit of stenciling.

and voila.  


  1. Wonderful Irene, and the step by step is terrific.

  3. I am so amazed at your tea bag art. I too saw a face. Love her hair.

  4. That's a lovely one. You will be able to have a mass exhibition of all your teabag faces - it will look fantastic. Repeated designs are so compelling - like frames of those old cigarette cards.
