Capturing Fall

There are piles of leaf-dyed paper sitting around my studio and extended studio (kitchen), and still I roll more bundles for the dye pot.
This last batch had marigold petals sprinkled on some of the pages. I like how the flowers add fall color to the mix.
I dyed some silks and wools as well, but the images aren't as crisp as on the BFK Rives paper. These will probably end up as blocks in the tablecloth I keep threatening to make.
At some point, I'm going to start making covers to house all these pages. But not today.

  1. All of your prints are stunners and if I knew the process, I would be making a bunch right now, too!

    1. India Flint has two wonderful books on Eco-dyeing -- Eco-Colour and Second Skin -- but, of course, taking a workshop with her is even better!

    1. Thanks, Sue. As I said to Dawn above, India Flint has written two great books on the subject, and her workshops are awesome. I'd love to see how yours turn out!
