Tea bags, dryer sheets & fibrous papers

Yes, you read correctly! that's what DLP want us to use for this week's challenge :-)

Happily it is something that I have in my stash & I know exactly which drawer to open - how good can it get!

I've used some paper that I bought from a fabulous shop in Totnes, (it's got little leaves included in the pulp) for the left hand page - the right hand one is using some paper I made from recycled mail & assorted metallic thread snips that came from machine embroidery work I did.

I sprayed some paper scraps (mulberry & dryer sheet) with distress & dylusions that I then diecut used tattered florals as well as using some Japanese newspaper that I acquired on a flight over to the USA a few years ago! The flowers have been glued down, sometimes layered as well, and then I done some doodling & stamping in the gaps.

The pages feel quite wonderful!


  1. Brilliant use of the peculiar ingredients - they add such lovely texture, and the colours are beautiful.
