Leaf prints.


 I am actually not a natural dye or leaf print person but I was so intrigued by doing this on paper that I had to give it a go.



I outdoor set up for boiling.


Daffodils


two dandelions, cransbill geraniums leaves and wild carrot


Pulmonaria


Clipped crocus blossoms and some ? leaves. I like the blue stems.


This is an immature fern with fronds just opening and a cransbill leaf.


Dandelion leaves


Comfrey leaves
