Time For CreativiTEA

Happy Saturday Everyone and Welcome!!  This month AP is  teaming up with Leaky Shed Studio's  makers of some really awesome chipboard products!! Our theme is Tea cups and Tiara's. So, in keeping with this months cross promotion I decided to alter one of their sweet little chipboard  tea cup and saucer pieces and incorporate it into my handmade Tea Bag gift Book .



 
 
 
Love this chipboard piece. I took bits and pieces of  Graphic 45's Secret Garden paper and collaged the tea cup and saucer. I then used some gold embossing powder and embossed the edges to give the tea cup that sweet rich vintage teacup look. Once completed I then adhered it to the cover of my handmade teabag book.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This little 5x7 book makes such a great gift for that special someone who loves tea!! I created it using the Secret garden paper and some purple cardstock. I then created little tags using a tea cup image from AP's collage sheet  "Tea Party Flowers" and adding a sweet quote about tea.
 
 
 
 
 
 
This little book has 6 little pockets just right for will holding 6 single serving tea bags or  whatever you would want to place in them.
 
 
 
 
 
I had such a wonderful time creating this and can't wait to send it to a special person!!. I think she is just going to love it!!
 
 
 
 
 
Well that's it for today. I hope you will join us daily as our amazing design team brings you more sweet art using Leaky Shed products and amazing products from AlteredPages.com!!
 
Happy Spring everyone!!
 
Oh,  HAPPY  15th BIRTHDAY ASPEN SKY ISAACS!!! Nana loves you!!

  4. This is just delightful! Whoever receives it is going to be so happy! One of our favourite tea shops is called 'Miss Mollett's High Class Tea Room' and it's in a tiny village in Kent in the UK called Appledore. They have an amazing array of vintage tea cups etc, embroidered cloths and the biggest meringues I have ever seen! Your beautiful and elegant project really evoked happy memories of that lovely haven for me. I'm so glad to have discovered your blog thanks to UPA! Julie Ann xxx

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
