Scrap for Help

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.



Great take on the challenge! Thank you for joining us at Scrap for Help.
