Hand Printed and Painted Fabric
My friend gave me some natural, loosely woven fabric, so on a rare, very nice day I used leaves from the yard as stamps. I used acrylic paint to coat the vein side, turned them over, covered them with paper, and rubbed them until the veins transferred to the fabric. I tinted the stamped leaves watery acrylic paint. The modern looking leaves are hand painted.
