her blog post for this week's challenge was printing using tea bags....and i have to say- i love it!! check out my studio princesses i made this last weekend using Lynne's technique.
it was apparently meant to be as i had started drinking a cup of tea at work in the afternoons and saving the bags to use in some sort of art project and then i read Lynne's post on saturday and was so excited!
the bags i had saved from work had a fold down the middle like the pink princess example above. so i dug in my cupboard to look for other bags without a fold. i did find that i had tea bags without that fold; which i used below. i noticed that this tea was a black berry and loved the color that was seeping through the bag. i laid the damp bags onto my paper to begin with and let them dry before doing any printing.
for the purple one, i wanted to see if it would print onto a gesso'd wooden panel....and i think it printed just fine- i like the results; although, i am not sure i would get the color of the drying tea bags on the panel like the paper did. so if you liked that effect- stick with the paper.
