Bugs


As many of you have guessed, I like working with tea bag paper, so here is my tea bag bug tag luminary. It is made by printing a "colouring book " image onto a used, emptied and dried tea bag, and pressing a leaf between it and another tea bag, and dipping and rolling it in melted beeswax. The tea bag paper becomes translucent and they look great hanging in a window, or as a book mark tag. The photo below shows the tag without light behind it. 

I also apologise as I don;t know where last week went.  I finished my tag for the theme, Japan, early on Tuesday morning and thought I would be able to sneak it in, but some of the early birds already had their Bugs tags posted, so here it is - another tag using an image on tea bag paper over the top of a magazine image. Great Japanese tags, everyone and already beautiful bugs!
