When Birds and Tea Bags Collide

My drawings of birds and my love of using tea bags in my creations collided this week and ended up as the images below.

I transfered my drawings onto the teabags and then painted them

but I didn't want the colour to show up too much

which is always easier said then done (0r at least for me)

I mounted them on a piece of watercolour paper.

I am pretty sure I am not done with these yet.... but that is all for today.

I am hoping to add them to my Etsy Shop today.


  1. Beautiful Kim! I am always so inspired by your tea bag creations. I have lots of tea bags saved that I keep in a cigar box. They are so fun to work with. Your art is so beautiful as always.

  2. These are just so beautiful in a subtle and graceful way, and your scavenger book article was fantastic. xox Corrine

  3. The soft diffuse texture on these is amazing. You never cease to amaze me with the consistency of your style with whatever you set about to creating.
    xoxo Kim

  4. Lovely, soft, ethereal. As always, your style is beautiful!

  5. Kim, what a beautiful collision!

  6. So delighted to see more tea bag art....still have my huge stash of untouched tea just reminded me of them. Want to help me get them done? LOL I thought I had you listed on my blog list, it will go on my fine art blog....right now!!!!

  7. I love tea bags too. I discovered the tiny canvas over a year ago, and enjoy creating with them. Love your drawings on them! Inspiring!
