Art on Tea Bags.......tiny gifts

Just playing. Ink and watercolor on tiny tags. by Jane LaFazio

A group of friends are doing a tea bag art swap and I needed to make 11 pieces of art on tea bags. This ended up being an easy and perfect theme!

I painted a patch of white watercolor ground, on the bags, and let it dry. Then I went in with pen and watercolor. Then, I used my sewing machine to stitch them onto a another piece of paper and added the little hand painted tag to go with.

Milagros! Hand-stitched and embellished.

Milagros ~ by Jane LaFazio

I'm enjoying making these hand-sewn and embellished milagros so much! I'm teaching a one day workshop in San Diego on March 2. Details here. 

I made a little video.

Online workshop on MILAGROS coming soon! Are you on my email list? SIGN UP HERE.

Milagros are religious folk charms that are traditionally used for healing purposes and as votive offerings in Mexico, the southern United States, other areas of Latin America, and parts of the Iberian peninsula.

I've really enjoyed watching these tulips grow!
Buddy and BeBop got out of the way long enough for me to draw the tulips!

I drew this in pencil, added a bit of watercolor. Then drew the details with a tombow pen and blended that with a waterbrush. Jane LaFazio

My kitty helpers are always around.

from my sketchbook ~ flowers at Brick n Barn

flowers ~ by Jane LaFazio
Husband, Don and I went to a new place in Valley Center, called Brick n Barn. It's know as the old Betty Crocker estate. It's a beautiful tree filled property with a giant barn full of antiques for sale. And, they have a food truck, on location, with coffee etc. 

We had a lovely morning shopping then sitting outside and working in our sketchbooks.
