tea splotch

Tea splotch - that's what this is. I was at a meeting where we were doing a variety of backgrounds using a variety of mediums. I had just made myself a cup of tea and when I was about to dispose of my tea bag, I thought, well, why not. So I set the wet bag on a tile and forgot about it. When I got to it later I wasn't sure I liked it but after looking at it for a while I started to see a leaf shape. After that it was easy to do. I forgot to take a before picture until I already had the leaf string in place.

Tangles were done with a brown Micron and then shading with colored pencils. A few highlights with a white chalk pencil and ready to sign it.


  1. I like the leaf and the tangles you used!

  2. Great leaf shape, especially for this time of year.

  3. I like that the leaf shape is not perfectly "leafy" (especially at the edges). It looks like so many leaves do after they've fallen to the ground and begin to decompose.

  4. So beautiful tile! Wonderful tea colour!
