Challenge 3 for the Stamp-a-thon was one I hadn’t done in quite awhile, teabag stamping. Right about now some may be asking, huh? It’s fun to see what different things you can create with & stamp on and through the years I’ve tried a lot through various art lessons.
If you are a tea drinker, like I am, you can dry out your teabags, gently open them up, brush away the tea leaves & have a thin tissue like tea stained piece of paper to stamp on.
The fun thing about this Stamp-a-thon is it wasn’t just cards. With the teabag stamping lesson also was collage & mixed media. I decided on a page in my Praise & Glory journal and dug into my collage box for my background. I used the teabag to stamp glorify from Sweet ‘n Sassy Words of Life: Actions & Flower Garden for the butterflies. I’ve been gathering verses from the Psalms as I read & chose Psalm 83:19
Let them know that You alone – whose name is ADONAI are El Elyon over all the earth. TLV
El Elyon is translated Most High.
The teabag piece is translucent on the page like vellum would be. If I can get some more of the studio in order, I’ve been toying with doing more mixed media/collage work. I forgot how fun it is to play with “outside of the box” art supplies.
With the chaos in the world at the moment it is good to remember God is above all and still in control. Praying for Afghanistan & our troops.
