Fleeting beauty

I’ve been out hunting for wildflowers over the past few weeks,
Drawing them, Photographing them,
Printing  with them.
Capturing  their  fleeting beauty.

They change the colour and mood of the landscape.

I have used Fushias to make prints on paper with an old printing press I've managed to get hold of.

 Ferns leave their imprints on papercloth ,I may sew into it later.

I have also been busy wildsewing ........

Using vintage lace as well as papercloth.

 Thanks for visiting ;)

  5. The print is beautiful - I love the idea of using an old printing press - something I've always wanted but would never have the space for!I The ferns are so pretty, and I love your use of vintage lace - very beautiful.
