Eclectic Ellapu September 2016 Pink Team Challenge

Over at Eclectic Ellapu, the Pink Team's September challenge is the theme "Gifts". If you want to join in, make something with a gift-giving image/sentiment, make gift packaging, or make a gift!

My Design Team project is a gift that also has a gift theme, because really, every day is a gift. Once the invincibility of youth gives way to recognition of our mortality, this sentiment gains depth. With the idea that each day is a gift in my mind, this month's project took shape: a daily gift of one of my daily gifts. Thus, my tea book was born: seven pages of tea, one each day as a gift and a small way to reach across the miles to share a cup of tea with my friend.



Supplies used:
  • upcycled cake box
  • Lemon Chiffon Apple Barrel acrylic paint
  • Sea Green and Yellow Brushos
  • Memory Box Texture Drip Rings stencil
  • Golden Semi-Gloss Regular Gel
