Natural wonders – Green tea



A happy Tuesday to the TSFT-gang !
I hope you are all well.
I have a cup of green tea in one of my Altered Books for you today:

 
It's a natural wonder - a gift of nature for us.
 
 I started with some leftovers from other projects and 
an empty tea box from green tea teabags.


 
Some layers later I came up with this spread .

I link to Art Journal Journey 
where we have "Nature's Wonders" as our theme and it is also meant
for the new theme at Try It On Tuesday
where we want to see you using leftovers this fortnight.

For Elizabeth's SECOND ON THE SECOND 
I have this older tag I made in 2014:


The original post ( including a how to make video)
can be found HERE.

  1. Lovely page, well made, but coffee as a natural wonder might be more to my taste! Beautiful tag from way back when, gorgeous colours. Happy T Day, 2nd on the 2nd and happy everything, hugs, Valerie

  12. I seldom drink green tea. I like it, but there always seems to be a black tea here I like better. I should be more intentional, I guess. Thx for the reminder :) Happy T Tuesday

  13. Lovely pages, and I loved that you shared the process of how you transformed all those materials into a such beautiful page! Now you've made me crave green tea, so I think I'm now going to have a cup (and a cake of course) :-). Thank you and wishing you a Happy T day! J :-)

  21. Green tea certainly is a healthy drink - just not for me though - I am allergic to tea - or rather I used to be years ago, and I am not prepared to find out if I still am! I do love your page though, such beautiful colours and a great way to use your leftovers! I love that second look at your tag! Hugs, Chrisx

  22. I love this T post Susi. Makes me want big cup of green tea now. I have the windows open and its kind of cool, so that might warm me up a bit. Hope all has been well. :) Hugs-Erika

  26. Love the photos of you work in progress. I wish I could back to drinking green tea. I do know how good it is for you and know that I was healthier and thinner when I drank it. I was also much younger...that could account for a number of things. ;)
    Happy T day!

  27. I sincerely apologize for not visiting sooner. My internet/phone problem took the wrong time to go offline again. Even the serviceman is confused. Before he could leave, thinking all was well, it went out again. Right now I'm at Sally's and this has to be quite quick.

    You have no idea how thrilled I was that you shared the step by step images for how you made your green tea beauty in your altered book. You certainly put a great deal of time into making it, and it showed.

    I was also thrilled you shared this beautiful autumn tag and video with us, because it was before I met you.

    Thank you for joining T on Tuesday, and thanks for sharing a second look on the 2nd. I also appreciate your patience in my visit.

  30. Lovely tea page, Susi - I love it that you've used the tea box for a starter!

  31. Grandios! Die Entstehung der Seite ist ein Wunder für sich - danke für die Bilder dazu! Ich sehe nun, dass du das Weiß erst zum Schluss einbringst, und im Video von 2014 sah ich ein TippEx liegen, nimmst du das als Weiß? Ich habe es so genossen, dieses Video anzusehen, es macht Spaß und regt zu eigenen Versuchen an!

    1. Ich verwende gerne Tippex zum Schluss,(ja auch hier um die Blätter nochmal zu umranden - ganz recht) weil der ist günstig und ich kann damit echt auf fast allem Weiss aufbringen. Die weissen Gelstifte sind zwar feiner, aber die halten nicht lange und über Acrylfarbe zicken sie gerne.

    2. Danke! - In einem anderen Video von dir (ja, ich bin bei deinen Videos hängengeblieben :)) sah ich dann, dass du für größere Flächen auch Weiß aus dem Tiegel verwendest.
