the Hoveas are flowering

in the garden
its a shrub that one doesn't notice until it flowers
then it puts on a spectacular display
I tried some leaf prints the other day
added line
added some colour
decided to get physical with the mallet
amazing amount of colour from the flowers
this one is quite subtle
smashed onto previously printed paper
now I'm off to google others' smashing techniques
2 minutes with google led me back to my bookshelf to 
India Flint's book "Eco Colour" and the 
Hapa Zome technique.


  1. the smashing technique is a little too brutal for me but that may just be my lack of finesse with the hammer!

  2. smashing technique? brutal.....but wonderful results Jane.
