The garden is coming alive with promise! Today I found my favourites the first violets, growing in the cracks between the flagstones:
In the past, I embroidered this beloved scene with free motion embroidery and beading on a substrate that I first painted with my impressions of blue and lavender violets growing freely:
Beading and little painted cut outs were applied to the finished stitching. As a matter of fact, this was one of my fiirst free motion abtract art stitcheriea, completed in the spring of 2004.
This year, I am wondering how those violet leaves and flowers will look as eco prints…and maybe these plants, too:
This is the first dandelion in my garden (I love dandelions). I have read that dandelion roots can print red but have not heard of anyone who can actually prove that claim.
What about forsythia?
But for sure, this will print: a rusted iron Spring Flower sculpture my husband made :
Not sure how much time I will have before the wedding to eco print the above spring blooms and leaves..
My .last task is to make lots and lots of bunting to decorate the wedding venue!
