Eco Printing from Margie's Yard
My neighbor, Margie, is a wonderful gardener, and her spring gardens always look so inviting as the first of the bulbs show their full glory. As I live across the street, I have a premier view! Inspired by the eco printing techniques used by Diana Taylor and Marilyn Stevens, and having Margie's permission to cut flowers on their way out, I decided to try my hand, using a graniteware canning pot with the jar rack and two wall tiles.
Nothing made from them yet, but love the images. Note to self: Layer so that the next layer is a NEW piece of paper :-) I did not do this, and so have beautiful images on both sides. I thus will likely make a small book so I can enjoy them all without having to select which I like better! I am also curious to try soaking the paper first, and using alum which may have a nice effect on the colors, per Diana Trout.
Thanks for visiting..... look forward to posting some makes soon. xx Lynn
