Undecided

I am working on a piece that has a house on a tea bag.


but, I can't decide if the tea bag should be mounted on a piece of blue or straight on the off white piece of paper.



when it is on the blue, you can see more of the blue through the tea bag


as well as the white paint I have added down the side of the house.


Here it is on the off white piece of paper.



It still contains some bits of blue that I have added with pan pastels.



I find it sometimes helps to take pictures of a piece and look at it from a distance. I am still undecided.......

  1. I love your teabag art! The blue gives the house the impression it is near the sea. The white give it more of an isolated feel. It's lovely.

  3. I love the blue, for the extra depth, but I (just personally!) would hide the blue edges. Tho the white is very crisp.....a series maybe? ;) Hope you're getting better.

  4. I agree with Emma about hiding the blue edges. Both look just lovely.

  5. Now I'm kicking myself for overlooking your blog for the Versatile Blogger award, I was in a hurry and went through my list too fast and you certainly deserve it. Mind if I tag on your link or will if feel like too much of an afterthought?

  6. Oh my, they are both lovely. The blue really does give it a different feel... I'm afraid I'm not much help, but I know you'll make it just right, whatever you decide!

  10. I love it with the blue behind it. And I love it showing around the sides. It's a nice layered look. What a lovely blue!
