Like many of you artsy folks, my work table collects lots of scraps and other bits and pieces. The other day I decided to sift through them and make a page for Elle's Books, Cats, and Tea challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I started by adding dots and a die cut circle. I doodled a red scalloped frame around it and added the white dashed line along the edge.
Just like the die cut circle, everything else came off my work table and were arranged as you see them. The big tea word and the small tea word were on 2 freebie stickers I picked up at a BBQ place back when I visited Charleston. I cut out just the T-E-A parts. As an afterthought, I used some very watered down black acrylic paint on the part of the background still showing.
I think there's a definite story with this page. It all has to do with the beautiful lady on the bottom left. My version of this story is that Marny, the beautiful lady, is coming home from a very long and fancy party at 4 in the morning. She is still too wound up to sleep, so she makes herself a cup of herbal tea (no caffeine as she eventually hopes to get some sleep) and sits outside her door, watching the night sky lighten up with morning.
What's your version?
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your Thursday is going well.
