When it comes to keeping memories from your travels and life in general, most people opt for a simple notebook or a specialized journal. Not Ruby Silvious. This New York-based artist decided to keep her memories on used tea bags.
How could that possibly look? Way prettier than we imagined. “The used tea bag is not very attractive. But while you may see a soggy, stained tea bag, I see a blank canvas,” Ruby shared. And it’s obvious that this girl’s talent is extraordinary from the very first look at her work.
Ruby started painting on tea bags in 2015 as a way to practice creativity and inspire others through social media. “I hope that people who view my art are changed in some way, perhaps with a renewed belief in the art of the possible,” she said.
