Eco printing with ferns and gum leaves

 
A cotton/spandex top that I eco dyed last week (slow cooked in a crockpot of banksia leaves + alum with spring water; bracken fern and eucalyptus leaves between the layers). I will be listing this cute little top for sale soon in my online shop

The perfect dress

 
Found the perfect dress to go with the embellished cardigan I shared the other day. Dress was taupe (nylon/spandex); now transformed with shades of soft citrus green, purple and black. Dye pot of wild cherry and alum in spring water; sprayed with a vinegar solution before layering with 3 kinds of eucalyptus and wrapping around an iron bar. Slow-cooked in a crockpot for 5 hours.

Eco dyed and rusted vintage and upcycled linen doileys and a cotton cot sheet; also eco dyed brown paper. Mostly hand stitched. Size – A3 (my entry in a challenge on ‘making your mark’).

Collaborating with nature

Drum roll please! Announcing my new greeting card range, ‘Marked’, featuring eco prints wrapped around acid free card stock and mounted on textured white DL cards.

Eco printed on 110 gsm acid free art paper which was first dipped in tea, then layered with local eucalyptus leaves and rusty nails. Stacked and weighted, then steamed for 1.5 hours. Dried overnight, then ironed.
