The challenge at Scrap for help is to use teabags.
I started by wiping a used teabag across the page to stain it. I placed rings of tea using the cup bottom around the edges.
Next, I matted my photo of a fabulous screen that we saw in the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. The colours of it dictated how I put this layout together.
The chippy is from MEMORY MAZE and I have misted it with both sugar maple and English ivy to give a brown/green look.(like the tree)
The mauve satin flowers that I made are similar in colour to the birds.
The blue Prima flowers and title colour reflect the water.
I made a library pocket using pink papers with a vellum flower on the top left hand corner of it.I'll pop my journaling in there. This matches the sky in the screen.
So finally,here is my entire layout.
