Real Time Art Journal Page – Nice Girl From Good Home

I’ve seen a few YouTube videos featuring the use of cold coffee, tea and tea leaves. I was so interested in this strange art journaling technique, I wanted to play with them myself. So for this art journal page, I dug out some vintage pictures, mixed up the tea and coffee and left the tea bag on the side ready to use!

I have of course filmed the whole process from start to finish in real time, only the drying time cut out! To watch the video simply click the YouTube image below.

  1. Another wonderful art journal page, Mike! So visually interesting! I haven’t watched any other tutorials on YouTube with this technique, but I was using tea as a stain in my art work many years ago. I had a friend who was starting out in journalism around 1999 – she had just had her first few articles printed in the newspaper. I remember photocopying some of her stories, headlines, and her byline onto white paper, then using tea as a stain to give a vintage weathered look. I tore bits of the articles to create a collage and framed it for her. Haven’t used the technique in many years…I think it’s time to go make a cuppa! -CAL
