Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge


It's Tea Time!
[link]

That's right, this week it's all about tea.

(Apologies if we have done this once before.
I think that was COFFEE and tea, and by the time I thought of it, 
I'd found some awesome tea-related examples that I couldn't part with :)

So...this week it's tea only, but if you want to sneak another
beverage into the pot or the cup, we won't call the tea police!


Who doesn't love to be invited to a tea party?

with plenty of sweet treats to go with.

Tea on the road. Who would have thought?

Don't forget to keep the tea warm if there's a nip in the air.

Speaking of the Tea Police...does anyone have their number?

(Take a moment to visit the links for each image to see some incredible talent!)



Have fun this week incorporating TEA into your chosen medium.

Pour a cup while you are contemplating what to create.
It's not only soothing in times of trouble,
but I believe it adds a little spark to the creative juices.

We've been so energized by the new participants who have
played with us lately, and we hope you return again!

Anyone who has not entered yet, but would like to?
This is the last week for the June-July Giveaway...
 (every time you enter you have a chance in the drawing).
See the sidebar for the current giveaway ~
A jar packed full of juicy inspiration elements from ImGirl.
It's overflowing with awesome pieces to create with!


Have a creative week, and take time for tea :)

ugh, not too happy with how mine turned out, but I think making a painting of a table setting of teapots would be fun! I enjoyed drawing the shape of the teapot, but I shouldn't have added the black outlines. oh well! Here is mine: http://marciabeckett.blogspot.com/2011/07/tea-journal-page.html

artangel said...

I love this theme, and I don't even drink the stuff ha ha! There's something about tea though that's so quaint and whimsical!

Claire said...

Tammy said...

Here's mine: http://tammysprinkle.blogspot.com/2011/07/tea-time-challenge-at-iae.html

I am so frustrated. I am still not able to see the writing in my posts when I use Mozilla and now Explorer won't let me post at all.

Picture me lying face down on my bed kicking and flailing me arms. That's how I am felling inside! Darnit!

Stephanie Mealor Corder said...

Here's mine- I'm running behind as usual!
