Hi, I'm back with my DT sample for the Scrap For Help blog.
Here's the prompt.
This is my take on the challenge.
Can you see where I used a tea bag?
Perhaps a close up will help. ;)
It's there I promise.
Give up? ;)
Well, what I did was cut open the tea bag and pour the tea leaves onto white cardstock then mixed it
with Gesso and smeared it over the paper.
I then brewed a tea bag and squeezed the liquid from the tea bag so it dripped over the textured background and coloured it a lovely tan colour.
At this stage I hadn't decided which photo I was going to use for this layout.
So when I was flicking through my pile of pics this one of my son at Avalon beach in Sydney
jumped out at me. The texture I had created reminded me immediately of the sand in the picture.
I then added some metallic blue Gelatos, to mimic the blue of the water.
So do you think you can use a teabag somewhere on a layout?
