The best drink of the day for me – a cup of PG Tips with milk and one sugar, not too much milk, not too strong, just right! That’s what I start the day with and the first thing I have when I get home from Market, especially on Wednesdays!
I created this altered page in my old girls’ annual for this week’s Three Muses challenge – a nice cup of tea. I was looking for a tea cup and saucer for my collage and couldn’t find one, but I did have a pic of “Monkey” from the PG Tips box that I could use and, as the commercials are always really funny, I decided to construct my collage in the same vein.
I cut up some phrases from a magazine advert and rearranged them so that they make no(n)sense! And then I had more fun piecing together cut out words and phrases to go on Monkey and with the teapot! I find cutting up words very absorbing… The background was really quickly painted with some peach emulsion and bright orange Stewart Gill paint over the top. The heart flowers are my handcarved AIW stamp and the paw prints (just for fun) are from a set of mini stamps I bought years ago!
The smaller text reads: “Confused? Why Not take TIME FOR TEA when freshly poured with a stylish pot… Enjoy this home intelligence. Whatever your style, there’s a vintage teapot… Clockwise from top!
