I have been working ahead as I have some deadlines coming up and wanted to get my round robin piece completed early. What a good feeling to have this 8 x 8 finished for Brian Kasstle! I used some new techniques in Afternoon Tea. First, I have experienced applying paint with credit cards forever, but I made a new tool discovery and I don't know the name of the implement. It is a bread bag closure. What is its name? It is not a twist tie. I guess I am going to have to do an internet search to see if I can find out. If anyone knows the name put me out of my misery to tell me. The white lines were made by this new tool.
Second, I am using papers from a Japanese umbrella that one of my students gave me. I love how it adheres and is a strong element in the finished collage.
