Art From a Tea Box

I recently made art from a Yogi tea box. I made these with even some leftover! I thought about coloring them, but I kind of like them this way. What do you think?

    Beauty – intricate and lovely drawing – medium? pen and ink maybe? I say leave the b/w. You did colour the bookmark though – gorgeous – medium? coloured pens? I’m exploring all of your site and loving everything I see.

    • Thank you for your comments! It was pen and ink. I thought about putting my mediums up on these, actually. Mostly I use ink pens or collage on paper. Sometimes I accent with colored pencil.

    That is actually a very good idea. Some of the fancy and elaborate package designs, teas and other items come in, really is worthy of saving for recycling into a different form of art project. Nice share.
