Mother Nature’s Colors in eco-printing on silk
My last “batch” before leaving for a trip to Oregon earlier this month. Grinding, then boiling cochineal bugs and laying out plants on silk….all part of the long process!
Laying out the plants
And the results? Oh my, what fun! 🙂

Almost 3 weeks in the Pacific northwest and I could not leave without expanding my collection of leaf matter. Check out the monster Big Leaf maple. The weather promises to break, the snow is melting and the sun will make it possible for me to create more of Mother Nature’s Art 🙂
