Wildflower printing

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

  7. So you're printing too but in a completely different way to me! ;) I love the print of the grasses, I see lots could be done with this! xx

  8. Ooh lovely prints, they have turned out beautifully - I love the change in colour too! Lately I've been printing using a heat press with heat sensitive inks but I think your results are better than mine - I haven't had anything I'm really happy with yet, but I'll persevere! Your old press is gorgeous - I have press envy!


Thank you for stopping by, I love to hear from you.
