Your plant prints are so delicate! The pinecone one is my favorite. You could do a whole "Fibonacci series" yourself!

Your last paragraph is a post in itself. I hope you can elaborate further, both in written and artistic form.

The little violas are gorgeous and so are the pinecones - I know you would be able to improve on it!!

Right on about your ending thoughts! Thank you for sharing. This should be plastered out there somewhere for the whole world to see and think about!

Linnea

That looks great! I can't believe how well the color transferred. I was just at the purl bee (https://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/) and the last two posts feature knitted mushrooms. They immediately reminded me of you! Have a fabulous weekend!

Its beautiful - I will have to try our ferns. We bought a place and the man (45 years ago) planted 30 different kinds... We can only find 20 or so but its fun looking. Thanks for all your great posts!

Margie, this is such a genius idea!
Something so simple and easy to make!
I really love it and I am looking forward to trying it myself! I was thinking about trying in on paper too and see what happens!
Thank you sooo much for sharing this with us!!!

These turned out so delicate! Mine are mostly blobs. Colourful blobs, but blobs nonetheless. Guess I'm pounding too hard... I did like the results I got from pounding left-over lettuce leafs from the garden though, it creates a lovely green background wash. Thanks for the inspiration!

Dennise

I did this on some handkerchiefs and they turned out lovely.

mollie

I've tried this on paper with violas and daylilies, but never on fabric... Can't wait to give it a try!

I am currently doing a research report on the science of e-waste. What kind of a textbook would help me out best - environmental science or ecology? I am looking for a book that explains HOW chemicals like mercury, lead, cadmium, along with plastics, affect the environment.

custom letterhead printing

At present, all flower printer can not print colored images or words in Red roses. Since the ink is transparent ink can not cover the self red rose. Now, we have researched and developed out of a special ink including white not transparent Using this type of ink.

I used a brush and brushed surface with some fabric paint and pressed it on fabric using my hand to get behind the pinecones model because they are not flat.

Florist Sydney

I like the method you used here. Can this be done with different fabric?
