Tea-bagging? The new art medium :D

I know...I spat my tea out too :D But apparently it's all the rage so I just had to give it a go, and I'm sure someone in the World of Web has given it a better name by now, but life's to short to care(just think of all those confused and disappointed Googlites, who arrive here by mistake lol)
Any hoo...you get your used "beverage" bag, empty it and dry it out, and use it as a tiny canvas!

I used acrylic paints and a teeny brush...
too quick and basic for step by step, so here is the second one lol :D, and because my tea bags are round..(this isn't sounding any better is it?) I cut hem open like a locket and painted on the inside...
Thought I better do a ruler shot... measurements in inches, squares in cms :D
so my teabags are only 2 inches across...is that unusual??? Might have to google that and see LMAO :D
Because they are teeny I'm counting them both as face no 23 for 29 Faces in February :D XXX
