eco printing

Playing around with eco printing techniques or the extraction of ink from the leaves and flowers of petals through the use of a mallet or hammer. For this project I used an assortment of plant material from the garden -  
dandelion flowers, nasturtium flowers and petals, hibiscus flowers and autumn leaves from the maple tree, which incidentally, gave some good satisfying purple, red and green tones. I covered a handmade cardboard box with my printed fabric and now the box is used for collecting interesting treasures found from nature. ....lichen  on twigs, stones, feathers, flowers for drying and so on.
