Tea Bag Birds


I enjoy these so much, so felt the need to make some more tea bag bird.  I transfer my drawings to tea bags, add just a smidge of colour, some bits of text from an old book, and some markings with ink and whatever tool I want. 

I bought some small clip frames, and decided to display  the birds in them.

I love the colour that the tea bag has on it naturally.... some more greenish, some really brown, and some quite rosy in colour.


And now I have two more tea bag birds to add to my collection.

  1. These are beautiful. I'm not usually one for clip frames but they set the tea bag birds off a treat.

  2. Your birds are just wonderful - and the natural color from the tea bag sets them off just perfectly.

  3. Another beautiful piece of art Kim.
    What a great way to display your birdies.
    Any chance you would do a tutorial on how you do the colourings or do something like birds on a tea bag. I would be very interested....hint hint
