I saved my tea leaves today to put into an assemblage ...I think your grounds planted the seed. What type of dry transfer are you using? I have been employing gel mediums for adhering my papers and fibers to my pages and sewing them once they have dried ... just curious? I did get out a few collage books for references. This melting process is intriguing. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

ooh, i love these, seth! particularly grounds -- i am in love! did you use used coffee grounds or instant? i LOVE instant coffee on paper and fabric. such beauty here, seth! if a dumb client didn't do a stop-payment on a big check to me, i'd buy grounds right now. maybe something miraculous will happen by morning. :)

Lovely as usual. I, too, would love to know if you use real coffee grounds or instant coffee. I have tried using coffee grounds before, but they simply wipe off in the end.
