Life's Little Reminder

Tea Bag Bookmark
A little reminder of what we can make out of life if we just look around us.

I was in need of a bookmark. I was wishing it to be unique, a one of a kind. 

A used tea bag. Dried with a little help from the sun. 

Carefully handled... this became the canvas for my artwork.

inspired by lynne hoppe

A splash of watercolor, a squeeze of acrylic, a touch of ink, 
sealed with wax and layered with clear acrylic.
She became a hand-painted one of a kind creation!
A tea bag turned into a bookmark.

I am so thrilled with how this turned out!!

My advise:
  Look around you, use what you have available, 
it is right there in front of you...waiting.
Make art. 

Happy Wednesday!
