Eco Printing

In helping a friend who is interested in trying eco printing, I made the prints below this past weekend. I’m working on a step-by-step tutorial with photos, and I’ll post it here soon for anyone else who may be interested. In the meantime here are my 9 prints from plant materials in our yard. I’m happy with them especially because I’m getting more color. This is so much fun!


With these prints, I’m linking to Art Journal Journey. The theme is "Thankfulness" this month, and I love the peaceful wooded area where we live.

Oooh.... I am excited about the tutorial. I have never attempted eco-printing. Is it in any way like sun-printing?

I'll be interested to see how you do this process. Your pages are lovely.

I'm also really interested in reading your tutorial, Barbara. Maybe I'll see and learn what I'm doing wrong, because my prints have NEVER looked this good. Thanks beyond belief for sharing these gorgeous beauties with us at Art Journal Journey. They turned out simply stunning.
