ECO-DYED PAPERS AND A COLLAGE


I wanted to show you some of my latest Eco-dyed papers 
so here goes ....


I used different leaves and a few flowers, 
below rose leaves , which always gives a lovely print, for me .



I don`t remember all , but  I used old book pages ,khadi paper, 
and old  envelopes .


This is beautiful in real life !!


Here I used Alun leaves  ( Heuchera) which tends to
give this beautiful tone . 


This is a bough from an Elderberry, still with green berries.


Another rose leaf ,- and below I used tiny Daisies,
giving this print ,which I love . 



And below on e of the collages made using a print as 
background .
 The link should hopefully take you to her online classes ,and this 
Botanical Collage  Miniclass.


It is a wonderful experience to dye with nature items, and to follow 
Kate in showing and doing how to !!

Have a lovely weekend- 
Hugs and love
Dorthe

How lovely to find you have sneaked a blog out without me knowing Dorthe, what a wonderful surprise this evening. Thank you so much for sharing your eco dyed papers, it's a beautiful thing to see those leaves make their mark on your choice of papers. Amazing how you managed to capture those elderberries and the rose leaf is so detailed. You sure have shared your love and process with your finished piece, stunning. There's always a cosy hug when you share with us all.
Hope you are keeping well my friend? Sending hugs Tracey xx

These are so beautiful, Dorthe - the ones over book print have a mysterious, ethereal quality, and those daisies are just magical. What a wonderful series of prints.

Dorthe the eco dyed paper is gorgeous. I love it. I tried once but sadly no room to do this in my flat. I didnt do a great job either lol. Never mind yours is beautiful. You have the magic touch. I adore the beautiful collage work you make with them too.

Sending special hugs and love

Thank you for sharing. These are all beautiful. I might try with some of my Mother's funeral flowers. Several had huge leaves. Hoping life returns to some normalcy soon. Stay Safe.
