Woods and Cotton Scrim

Nap Wood visit page on the left-with two pieces of fern and a beech leaf from the walk. I used mod podge to stick the things in. The ink writing is on a teabag. The mod podge comes out quite shiny so I prefer matt medium-but was just too lazy to go and look for that! The teabag person on the right is sewn in as I wasn't sure I could stick it because it is coated in wax. I have a growing pile of teabags to use-roll on the holidays! If you click on the picture you may be able to see the base of the left hand page-it was a DIY shop find-this stuff called 'cotton scrim'-which plasterers use under plaster to strengthen joints. Metres of it for about £3. If anyone would like a bit to try just email me your address and I will send you a couple of metres! It has a very loose weave and I am sure could be used in all kinds of ways.

I enlarged the page and looked at all the details, very nice. I really like the painting on tea bags,it might get me to drink tea!
