Promised Pictures from FIVE Play Date

Saturday the FIVE gathered and we played with embossing and making leaf prints.  Here are my two examples of embossing.  The material is a hand dye I made by pole wrapping. The first is an oak leaf embossed in gold.  The second is a flower composition embossed in a clear sparkle, copper, and then black.  I think you can only really see the black but then when you get closer you can see the other two.  Makes a nice multi-level figure. (I didn't turn the picture so it is sideways in orientation. sorry)

After lunch we moved on to make paint prints of leaves. Here are mine.  I printed them on a old clean-up cloth of mine--as you can tell from the ring on one of them!  I will be enhancing these with fugitive medium.


  1. I wish i could have been there with you...these are so sweet...I can only imagine how you will play once again begin sewing with them. WOOHOO! Peace, Mary Helen
