Artist and graphic designer Ruby Silvious has been experimenting and creating art on recycled and found materials. In 2015 she began a project called 363 Days of Tea, a visual daily record of her impression of the moment. She followed it up with 52 weeks of tea, 26 days of tea in Japan and 26 Days of tea in France. The used tea bags became her canvas on which she drew, painted and collaged using ink, watercolor, gouache and paper. This incredible series can be seen on her website and on Instagram.
