Printing


Oh boy did I have fun printing with leaves!!


First up is this grey and blue beauty made using spray inks. 


I got some definition but not satisfied I started to think a thicker medium would give better results.


So I used this sheet to soak up the excess spray inks on my craft mat and then pulled out some acrylic paint.


The definition was much better, picking out even the smallest veins on the leaf.

I know this is a playgroup craft but it really made me smile.  I genuinely had so much fun, bring on Autumn!  (Actually, I would like a nice Summer first please!)

  2. Very cool technique. Prints like these would make great backgrounds for a layout.
