the leaf printing journey

Printing with leaves takes a lot of time and experimentation
Printed this paper in my first workshop
with Elizabeth Bunsen
I did lots of embellishing to add interest
The next 3 photos are of current print bundles
Now I get colour & definition of leaf shape
and print on fabric
eucalyptus with casuarina needles creating a fine tracery
on fine merino wool scarf
eucalyptus with grevillia (silky oak)
on silk satin
eucalyptus with a different grevillia
again on silk satin


  1. gorgeous prints. such great definition.

  2. the good thing about experimentation is the resulting, very gorgeous samples!
