Spirit of the Evening
Inspired by mint tea.
Orbit gum currently comes in the most intriguing package with all manner of pleasing shapes and shades of green. Whenever I finish a pack, I find myself playing around with the cardboard, trying to do something artistic and interesting with it; I finally got something I liked well enough to glue into my molie.
Sketched cup of tea with french mints. Used ink and touch of Gretacolor Aqua Brique made in Austria. It is watercolor in block form, looks like enlarged toy, but comfortable with water brush. Would be hard to carry around, but good at home. Drew my cat coasters we got in St Augustine, Florida, in that amazing Cat store.
A collage made with mint tea packages cut into strips and interlaced, as well as turned inside out.

A collage of mint tea wrappers in the ‘sleepless’ molie.
Finishing up the mint medley collage yesterday made me think there was a cup of tea waiting to be brewed on the next page. Here’s the initial sketch with the final picture to follow tomorrow.

The collage from a few days ago felt incomplete, so I added a few more leaves to the explosion.
