Noela and teabags

Week 6
Yes, I have covered my letters with teabags.
If you are not sure how to use teabags in your artwork, here is what I do [sometimes!!].
I start by not squeezing out my teabags and then I let them dry in the sun.
Next I undo the staple and open out the teabag.
I throw out the dried tea [yes, in the compost would be good],
then I iron the teabag tissue flat.
I have cut the tissue to the appropriate size for my ALaW letters and glued it over the inked letters. There was very little smudging, so back to square 1!!!

I love tea bags. Neat evolutions Noela. I am liking the steps idea ... a bit like mine where only time will tell what they'll end up evolving into.
