Taking pleasure in the simple things,
I have been printing from nature using wild plants.
The prints from my printing press have turned out beautifully!
I used spritzing ink in a lovely shade of aubergine to spray the blooms and grasses.
I love the way some of the plants natural colour combined with the ink to make beautiful green shades.
This year has been a good year for wildflowers.
I also used my Gelli plate and acrylic paint in a neutral shade to print with grasses,
When printed they look like Mediterranean Cyprus trees standing, soldier-like in rows!
I have trying to find out more about Eco-dying fabric now I am discovering what wonderful prints can be made using plants. I think that may be my next stop on my journey......
See you soon! J
