With spring fully upon us and summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and find inspiration . . .and some fun supplies for art making.
In one of my blog posts in the fall, I shared some pieces I made after printing with leaves from my yard. It was a fun little project and I loved how colorful the print came out.
You can get equally nice results with many flowers, too.
|In the July/August 2008 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, Cathy Taylor shared how she prints with flowers.
Using a Plexiglas® plate, leaves and flowers with interesting shapes, and ink, Cathy created this interesting and colorful print.
Step ourside and see what catches your eye. Can you print with it like Cathy? Boil it to make dye or textured prints like Laura? Hammer it between cloth to get a print like I did?
What interesting technique can you come up with? Leave a comment and tell us all about it.
