I had actually planned to take you on a really good dining experience this week, since I had such lovely comments about my bad T(ea) experience last Tuesday. However, my plans fell through because my friend Sally, who I was planning to treat, was unable to make it because her hot water heater quit working and she had to scramble to find someone to replace it.
Having said that, now it's time for a bit of retrospective.
Do you remember when I made this tea stained art using old tea bags and magazine images? I believe I said I wasn't sure what I would do with it, but I knew it wasn't finished.
Today I'm declaring it finished, since it's now going in my 7 Continents altered book. I've added more tea bags, joss paper, some stamped images I was gifted with, a China flag cut from a roll of flags,
German scrap, and a bit of stamping.
The tea tag attached to the original piece was complimented by another tag I hid under the China flag. Since I have no good way to photograph it, and I can't scan it open, you just have to take my word there's a tag under the flag. Wish I hadn't hidden the string so well! I disguised the gutter side (even though it will go in a 3 ring binder) with more tea bags.
This will be added to the Asian section of my 7 Continents AB. It is on the reverse side of the Sochi, Russia spread I showed a week or so ago.
Now it's your turn to share your T(ea) Stands for Tuesday post by linking below. When you do, Bleubeard and I will be by, along with other T(ea) participants and fans.
