BITS AND PIECES DYED IN FRUIT TEA ,AND SOME OTHER RUSTED IN MY GARDEN !!!


I want to show you this beautiful bunch of dyed fabrics and laces!


I think the colour which came out,is so beautiful, and using tea bags
for dying is always a chance to take on the colour tones !!


This time I was so very pleased, -also the skeleton leafe looks pretty!


This is the tea used, a leftover gift from some German dear friends!!


And then the rust part!!!! I made some months ago a roll of papers ,fabric, and laces,
added rusted keyes and nails, and some other tea bags , 
wrapped it all together with a metal string,and let it stay outside'
in the rain for some months.


Opening it up, this was what I found ,
lovely rusted pieces , you can see the rust elements here !!


And here some paper , now with a wonderful rustic feel.


The last dye is also from tea, and this time I used 
this Celestial tea, giving a brownish pale pink tone ,also so
very lovely I think !! 


I hope you enjoied seing my tea-and rust "party" it is so fun
playing with old scraps and nature dying materials !!


This photo is from my walk today, isen`t it the most 
beautiful water plant !!!

Have a wonderful weekend, my dear friends,- and thank you to you all ,for visiting and for 
commenting here, it makes me very happy ,and thankful !!

Love and hugs,
Dorthe
