I collaged the tea cups on to this piece of ply wood that I had my husband cut to size for me.. Handy him having all the tools for this.. He even drilled the holes for my wire to hang.. On the wire I popped some of my hand rolled paper beads just to add a bit of interest to the wire. I found some pretty coordinating papers for the tea cups and popped them in my printer to print on them, then I fussy cut them out and collaged them on top of each other..
I am trying out all different ways of writing and this was a fun one to do with its swirly curls. I used a black paint pen and a black uni pin pen to do the wording. I also used some rubons for the droplets out of the top of the tea cups. On the background paper I stenciled some swirls over the paper with some Tim Holtz distress tea stain ink.. I then used the distress stain to pop on the edges of the tea cups and around the outside edges.
I made this to hang in my kitchen and think that quote is just right.. Life is like a cup of tea its all in how you make it..
I am going to enter this over at the Blitsy mixed media challenge..
Have a great day
