Enjoying experimenting with my materials this week.
Today's face is drawn onto a collaged background of used tea-bag paper, I even left some of the tea leaves on the paper!
The square outlined shapes are the teabags which I cut open and washed to remove most of the used leave and then glued to some watercolour board.. I covered the whole piece in matt medium to seal it and added some gold leaf flakes.
It looks very weathered which was the look I was going for. The tea-bag paper is very absorbent, almost fabric like and colour bleeds into the surface beautifully.
