Kim I love these. I'm doing birds on teabags these days too so I especially admire these. Great fun! *smiles* Norma
These are simply amazing! I love those soft earthy tones. Nice work Kim!
So pretty...I always love art with birds!
Lovely birds! I do love your style.
Beautiful drawings, my teabag collection is growing but are very dark compared to yours, I don't rinse them; I could of course. But your rusting is fabulous, I've never managed that intensity of color - you inspire me to try again. Hope you're better!
Your drawing are so lovely! Love the tea dye.
Tea bags and birds make a lovely collision!
Wow, this is so inspiring to me. I have taken up drawing/sketching and my goal is to do birds and many other subjects. This makes me want to do them all the more. I thank you for sharing your work with us.Do you use a pencil to sketch first then colour??? Inquiring minds would like to know.Happy Tuesday, Lesley
Thank you for all of your comments. They make me smile! Below is a couple of answers to questions.Lesley - I don't actually draw on the tea bag, rather draw on paper, copy it to the size I want and transfer it using gel medium onto the tea bag. I then add the colour. Emma - I mostly drink herbal tea, and therefore the bags are not as dark as black tea.
