"Peel Away The Layers" series

As I approached my 50th birthday, I started to reflect on my life. The past years have peeled away to reveal the woman I am today. "Peel Away The Layers" series evolved from this statement. I found that used teabag papers were the perfect medium to use to convey this message.

  1. These are wonderful! Never would have thought of combining used tea bags with wool. The difference in textures and look must be stunning in person. Enjoy!

    1. Thank you, Jennifer! It's been a fun, ongoing series to create. Reading your post about your tea bag project has inspired me to work on a new project using this material.
