365 Somethings - Week 25

Hi Everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend, and enjoyed some lovely Summer sun.

I've got my Week 25 teabags for the 365 Somethings Challenge, to share with you today.

On this set, I started with a scrape of DecoArt Crackle Paste, then when it was dry I added a wash of DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic in Prussian Blue. I stencilled some Primary Magenta dots, stamped with a Lego piece and some Cadmium Orange Hue. I used a plastic tube to add some Prussian Blue circles, then attached some hand cut hearts and words, mounted over white thread. I circled the magenta dots with a black pen, and finished with white paint splatters.

Until next time,

  1. Brilliant and love how much detail you managed to get on them-finally got enough dry out of hubbys way to have a go-got gesso on then mind went blank

  2. Wow.. those 7 are sophisticated! Your techniques are brilliant!
    Happy evening and a good week with the perfect amount of sun for you!
    Hugs, Susi

  3. This series is phenomenal. I guess you know how MUCH I love hearts, so these were simply intense. I was so glad you shared how you made these. They are wonderful. Each and every one is a favorite today.

  4. Very pretty with their blue crackle base and layered hearts upon thread. Love how they each have a different prompt, super little creations Alison.
    Hugs Tracey xx

  5. They are lovely Alison - love the colours especially. Stamping with Lego made me smile - very clever though :) Phew hot isn't it even with a little breeze - like a sauna inside here :(
    Happy Tuesday...Gill xx

  6. Amazing teabags! The crackle paste and Prussian Blue paint with the stamping looks wonderful 😁. I hope you are having a lovely week, it's been hot and sunny here today! J 😊 x

  7. These are cool tea bags. I am curious, how do you get the tea out of your bags and yet keep the bags so intact. I love how these are all similar but different too. Hugs-Erika

    1. Thanks Erika! To empty the tea out, I dry the bags out first, then I just gently pull the teabag apart a little, and shake the tea out.

  8. Lovely decorated teabags.

  9. Love how you added the paint and of course the doodling and spattering are a great finish! Chrisxxx
