An Introduction to Leaf Prints on Paper
I tried!!! Amazing... Fascinating, I love it so much... And I will do more... These here were leafs from trees in my garden: maple and birch. It was for a blog-project. Summer-Mailart "Paradise Book". Ghislana Poppelbaum, Heidesee, Germany
I found your tutorial to be extremely organized and informative. I had been collecting bits of info all over the Internet and was happy when I came across your tutorial. Everything I needed to get started, all in one place. I am totally enjoying the process and get excited to open each new batch to see the results! I have already learned that what you get is more about what you layer under and over each piece of paper. As you can see in the first photo, the plant I used left the impression but the leaves I used under that made the beautiful edging design. I am also dyeing both sides as I want to use them in art journals. Really LOVING this! My long term goal is to make my own papers to dye on. I’m hooked! Jeri Bellini, Coopersburg, Pennsylvania
I have used Fabriano water colour paper and Schut drawing paper with great results. Thank you for your lovely written information. Margriet van Schaik, Haarlem, Netherlands
Create Your Own Original Abstract Art
I did multiple pulls out of the paint puddles on this canvas. I did an initial pull, looked at what I got, then poured and drizzled more paint into the original puddle and pulled it again. I repeated this process at least one or two more times. With each successive pull I purposely pulled the canvas up from a different edge. This resulted in the flower petals going different directions which I really like. Sara Hill, Garden City, Idaho
