I thought that giving my little ‘leaves’ a tea bath would ‘age’ them a little. All it did was turn them a solid brown tea colour. I was looking for a more uneven look, spots of darker colours and spots with no colour at all. I probably should have added the tea in drips and drabs, rather than completely imersing the leaves in a bowl of boiled tea. And now that I am writing this I feel pretty silly.
Live and learn. And now I am beginning again, cutting new leaves. It’s a good thing that I love the process.
Meanwhile I have the Thread Moose still to do, another project that has been in my head for a little bit and a new one that involves weaving. My thoughts and ideas are sometimes to big for my time, I’m going to start a list. A list of projects – in case I forget any of them.
Okay…back to cutting.
Until next post,
