Tea Time

Use something that would have been thrown away. Challenge Accepted.

So at the end of the day I gathered items from the recycle container. A couple of Kleenex boxes, my grocery list, smaller boxes, and the cardboard insert from our pizza dinner.

Wow I am so thrilled with the end result. I had no idea where I was going, but I knew I wanted to use the pizza round as my surface. Added Gesso and some favorite acrylic paints to get things going. Cut flowers and decorative items from the boxes, ripped up my list, and selected the 3 cups of tea from the Apriva box. You can’t see the dimension, however the short flower is placed on top of the seal from the new tube of adhesive, and the top flower has the “guck” from the top of the paint tube. I did add the tea bag cover this morning as a final touch. A bit of yellow sharpie decoration and then the quote, on a home made tag of course.

Would you like to join me for a cuppa?
