Hi everyone, Mou here with a tutorial to show you how to use Tea Stains on your art journal pages!
Let's start by looking at the supplies:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft -
100% Cotton Fabric
Dye Bath Containers
Watercolor paper, Magazine page, Scrap Paper, Seam binding, Tags
Sewing machine, Thread, Needle
Start by preparing the dye baths, one for each color. Place the Tea Stain Dye bag in the container and add hot water to it and let it steep just like tea for about 5 minutes. Be careful to not burn yourself.
Place 100% cotton fabric squares into the dye baths. Leave it in longer for more saturated colors. Carefully remove and let the fabric dry.
Also dip in some seam binding and baby wipe into the dye baths. Let them dry.
Add some pattern to the dyed fabric, torn in strips, with rubber stamp inked with Stamper's Big Brush pen.
Layer your papers and fabric as shown. Machine stitch to hold everything securely in place.
With Essential PITT Artist pen, sketch a key on a manila tag.
Attach the tag to the page. Machine stitch.
Add some texture to the page with Whipped Spackle applied through the dots stencil from 101 collection with palette knife.
Make marks on the page with Stamper's Big Brush pen and Jewel Brush Lettering pen. Also add some stitches to the page with needle and thread.
On a small tag, add a word and attach to the page to finish.
I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial!
