Ok as you can see the tree bodies are the stained paper and then the image of the trees and the fence you can see were drawn on with black ink pen and then white gesso applied over the background of the trees which brings the trees forward. What I love is the white of the paper acts like the light that shines on the trees in the woods. I love that! The above image is about 4 x 5 inches the below image is like 2 x 3.5 inches.
This is a sun print that I did with first dying the fabric with walnut ink concoction and then applying leaves to the fabric while it is still wet this is the result after the fabric has dried. This piece was then washed and ironed.
This was created with a cotton napkin that I found at a thrift store and then folded and wrapped around a rectangular shape of wood that was about 1/4 inch thick and then tied with a cotton yarn. This is one of my favorite pieces and love the look when the fabric has been dried and then ironed. It seems to bring out the details and subtle variations of color. It's like treasure hunting.
I have been inspired by so many people that I have discovered on the blogs. Soon I will learn how to link to them.
