365 Somethings 2018 - Week Two

Hello Folks! Thank you for all the nice comments on yesterday's journal page.

I have another seven teabags to share with you today, for week two of the 365 Somethings challenge.

On these teabags, I used a set of PaperArtsy Everything Art stamps with a variety of embossing powders, some of which hadn't seen the light of day for a few years. Naturally, the opaque ones worked best. I tried taking photos of the bags held up to the light, but couldn't get any decent shots. It was fun to experiment, and I love all the results. The Lapis Jade, Aged Copper and Metal Magic are favourites. 

And, just in case you're interested, here's my finished journal from yesterday. 

Hope you're having a creative Saturday too,

Alison x


  1. Love those tea bags and the journal looks fab. Hugs, Valerie

  2. I just need to remember to save my tea bags after I am done with them! Yours came out great. They will work well in some other piece of art or even as pieces of art themselves. And I love seeing the finished journal. All those colors peeking out are so tempting to me! Have a great weekend. Hugs-erika

  12. Such wonderful teabags, the embossing worked really well! That's quite an array of EPs in your craft stash too 😉... now I'm wondering if you recommend any in particular? Your finished journal look amazing, I bet it's fun to look through and I love the door handle on the front 😁. Happy Weekend! J 😊 x

  13. I had no idea you had posted this for the 365 something entry. I love the teabags, and wish we had them in the US. You made wonderful art with them and this is a very impressive entry.

    Since I can't seem to keep up with you and your art, may I please add your blog to my left sidebar? I'll only do so with your permission.


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop here. I love to hear what you think, every comment is very much appreciated.
