"Nature is the art of God"
After the leaves started to fall; I noticed
that if I didn't remove them right away
they left imprints.
Coming down my front steps - Now this
may have always happened but it's the
first time that I have "noticed".
The other day, I went out onto the deck
to clean up some of the mess that I had
made from painting/dyeing fabric all
I had left my rubber dye gloves out and
Found a leaf on my glove and when I removed
it found this wonderful surprise!
Here's a close-up
I think that is so cool!
I also discovered some imprints on my
Here's a close up
So I thought what if I put some leaves
on fabric and left it outside.
I had some Tea Dyed fabric that I thought
would looked nice if it worked.
I soaked the fabric in some Alum and
went outside placed some "newly fallen"
leaves on only half of the fabric and
folded the other half over over that.
I laid the small rusted fence (previous post)
over it so that if it dried it won't blow away.
I also went out periodically to wet the fabric
once it dried to continually keep it moist.
I guess I was too impatient and just left it
lay for 2 days.....
It worked! But I should have left it out
longer - a couple of more days. I also
lifted the fabric twice and should not
have done that either.
The leaf on the right came out very
good but the ones to the left did not???
Here's a closer look.
Here's another one. very good!
This is the other side that I had
folded over. Not much of an impression
on this side.
