You know by now that I love to use leaves for stamping paint on fabric. Both last year and this year while we were in Florida, there was a large leaf that kept shouting at me to use it. I ignored it until our last day there and then I broke down, bought a chunk of fabric and some paint. I wanted gray, and couldn’t believe the store I was at did not have gray fabric paint! So I settled for yellow, with white to temper it.
The first print was very pale, but I think I’ll be able to use it. I had to darken it to show it here, it’s so pale!
But you can’t really tell what it is! The next one was quite a bit darker.
and these things are BIG!! I picked a smaller leaf–it was only as long as my arm!
I did a couple of smaller ‘parts’ of the leaf and a half leaf, which is my favorite!
The last print I did was was using the leaf as a mask and just painting around the edges. I like it a lot, too.
You know by now that I don’t work on projects in a linear fashion. I will do something with these, but it’s not going to be tomorrow. It’ll be whenever and I’ll show you when I do something, but it’s an idea in the bank now…several ideas, actually, because these are huge!
Don’t know what I’ll be working on next…there are so many possibilities. I prefer that term to UFO’s! Stay tuned!
