holiday card....... {good}

when the quick holiday card is good...

not completely sure why i think this is a holiday card other than the time of year it was

maybe it was the fact that i wished her a happy holidays?.....

anyway, i am still totally in love with this color combo- payne's grey and quin nickel azo gold.

happy monday.

tea bag {art}

tea bag....

delicate; fragile'ness of mediocure translucency....

oh how i love working on you.

you present a whole 'nother layer of creative issues to contend with. 

  • remove itsy-bitsy staple to open bag- check
  • very carefully opened the bag to remove the tea without completely destroying bag- check
  • gesso bag without tearing- no check; tear one huge hole and another small hole- drat
  • use masking tape to repair- check
  • glue down collage- mostly check; did require additional gluing

happy wednesday.
