A piece of nonsense

'A piece of nonsense'. That's what Jean from our Art Quilt group called the lovely things she creates. We loved them so she taught us how to do it. Would you believe that this mixed media postcard is actually a brown paper bag that held mushrooms and a used tea bag?

The brown paper bag was painted with black acrylic paint and then distressed and rubbed with metallic wax. Then I've layered the tea bag with Lutradur. I burnt the bit in the middle to get this random shape. A fun bit of nonsense!


  1. I have some used tea bag papers sitting here waiting for me to do something with them. And now I've got some inspiration - thanks!

  2. Hi great to see you back in the blogosphere! LOVE both your piiece and the bag!!!!

  3. I love it! My mum has just bought a sewing machine and is going to give quilting a go!! :)


Thank you for visiting. I'd love to know that you were here.
