Okay so not every art journaling idea I have is great.
Exhibit A: because I have been sick three days now I have been drinking cups of tea and feeling sorry for myself and my traitor of a body. I thought I had ana maxing idea. Now I am willing to acknowledge it may have been the NyQuil talking!!!
Anyway back to the tea. An herbal tea I like has beautiful leaves and little softly colored flowers in it. So of course my mind (again maybe it was the fever) started thinking that maybe I could create an amazeballs journal background with the stuff. …… then again ….. maybe not!
I emptied the tea bag and spritzed with water and put a bunch of books on it to press it out. (Okay actually it was a huge box of baby wipes – but books sounds more artsy). I expected to open it just now and find lovely floral smells and muted natural colors all washed into the page in a wreath shape and I would use watercolors and stuff to art it up!!
Pic above is what it actually looked like. Nope — nothing. Just greyish greenish mess. But never say die and I am working with it today in between other cups of tea and coughing fits.
Check back tomorrow for finished product. Maybe it will be soooo beautiful and organic and smell of flowers. Stop laughing — Hey it could happen.
Now to finish that imperfect art of mine.
