More Mark Making with Eucalyptus

We are having a smidge of Indian Summer here before the temperature falls at the end of the week. There is that awful four letter word in the forecast. I’m not really into snow and ice dyeing so I will continue to long for the warmer days.

Here are 2 photos of fabrics fresh from the steamer, showing a corner of each. My friend Carol Suto sent me a box of eucalyptus leaves from California . I tried some on a previously leaf printed cotton and on a beaded and embroidered silk piece.  There were more in the pot but I particularly like the way these turned out.

I am linking to Off The Wall Friday this Friday since this is the most creative I’ve been this week.

I am linking this post to India Flint’s blog giveaway. You can check it out here.  I totally love her work and some day I’ll get great imprints like hers.
