Once again, on Pinterest. That place gets me into the best trouble! LOL.
I saw some photos of a piece that had been made of tea bags. I have been collecting tea bags for a while now. Not like years, but maybe months. Off and on because Frank randomly tosses the ones I have drying on the countertop in an act of pure subversiveness.
So I have been thinking of how I can use them. I am not that great of an artist that I can draw on them and make it beautiful like some I see on Pinterest.
So I headed my thoughts down another alleyway.
I fused them onto some Economy Cloth (note to self: get plenty more Economy Cloth).
Darn, it looked Asian! I have that Japanese challenge thing going on in my Fiber Group. So I took it there!
I printed out the Japanese characters meaning black tea. I traced it with a Prisma Pen using my new lightbox. I lost the last one in the flood. I love my lightbox so I replaced it when i had a quilt room to put it in.
And added back some tags and string. The Japanese philosophy is Simplicity so I kept it simple. Of course, you can make it larger by clicking on it, as always.
Now I need to figure out how to hang it. I am thinking about taking a piece of wood, creating a beaded line to the top of the piece and having it hang on the wood. If you can understand what I am saying..... of course I can no longer find the pinterest picture.
Just imagine it.
