MMH Tiny Tea Bag Paintings

I recently took an online workshop called Tiny Bags of Love with Jeanne-Marie Webb, an artist who uses tea bags as tiny canvases. You can check out the class here: https://ivynewport.com/tiny-bags-of-love

I have been inspired by all the work that has been posted on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram (search for #tinybagsoflove and #teabaggirls) and was thinking it would be a great thread to share tiny paintings with each other.

The majority of the paintings are portraits done in watercolors, acrylics or gouche but you could paint anything!

Preparing your tea bags is easy...just soak a couple overnight in boiling water and then the next morning lay them out on a tray or plate in the sun until they dry out completely. Then you can empty the leaves out carefully and you are ready to gesso the surface or just start painting!

When you finish your painting you should mail it out either mounted on a thicker piece of paper like card stock or protected by a plastic sleeve.

For those of you who have never done a MMH before. You agree to make the person before you in the thread ONE of their requests. You in turn list 3 things that would make you happy and the next person after you will try to accommodate your request.

The Nitty Gritty according to AFA:
-You must have an iTrader rating of +3 to start or participate in a PIF or MMH.
-When setting up your PIF/MMH please require players to send out their item before accepting another/offering trade.
-Posting pictures of what you have painted is encouraged!
-Players should agree to a 2 week maximum mailing dead line, and keep in communication, if not a Negative iTrader should be given.
-No chatting in the PIF threads - this makes them really hard to follow.
-Remember to give iTrader points when you receive your tea bag!

Who wants to play?
