Lots of pairs in this one!
I pulled together some of the pieces that I’ve been working on this spring. I’ve been working with printing techniques…here’s a pair of giraffes, that were done with dandelion and iron (ferrous sulfate.)
Here’s another close-up. A pair of pieces that star the famous pair–my great nieces, Holland and Riley. These are done with coreopsis, printed. Partly stenciled and partly hand-lettered.
The center piece is shibori-folded using coreopsis and indigo.
Lots of coreopsis. Partly because it’s very available in my backyard and mostly because it gives a wonderful orangey-gold. More color in the vat…but still evident in printing.
Here’s a free form piece that I did using dandelion and iron. When I turned it upside down, I decided it was an eye to watch over the pairs!
