One Cup at a Time: Mixed Media Art Journal Layout
“Take Life One Cup at a Time” has been my moto as of late. As the holidays draw near, I have been thinking a lot of all the things that need to be done and that tends to put the stress on. My tea cup has been my constant companion these last few weeks. But it also has me thinking about gift giving which is always fun. I love searching through my Pinterest boards for new ideas. Making gifts is what I prefer but let’s face it, a girl only has so much time. Every year I make an effort to plan ahead but fail miserably, scrambling at the last minute. Hopefully, I can get myself together this year. I’ll let you know how it goes.
What homemade gifts do you make?
Creating the Journal Layout
I made this layout using Grunge paste and a PaperArtsy stencil. I love that this stencil is tea themed! I used PA Freco Finish paints in the background along with some new PA stamps.
I stamped in the background and layered stamped images, thread, and a TH paper doll. The fabric is leftover from one of the dresses I recently made for daughter. PA Infusions were sprayed in the background and gesso was splattered.
Tea day is my favorite day of the week and I couldn’t wait to share with you my recent win. I won these 5 pouches of tea during a Facebook giveaway by Tiesta Tea. Every morning, I make a 3 quart pot of FRUITY PEBBLES TIESTA TEA |Green Tea Slenderizer Blend (green package). I am really excited to try all of these flavors, particularly the yellow pouch. Mango sounds delicious to my fruit loving palette.
I am playing along with Elizabeth and Bleubeard as well as all of the T-Day ladies.
Happy Tea Day,
