Print the Flowers
Making sun prints the other day inspired me to take advantage of the bounty of summer. We have wooded areas on three sides of our yard and I walked around collecting interesting weeds and flowers, plus begonias from a pot on the back step. I arranged them on top of our printer being somewhat mindful of what might fall in the cracks and crevices. Some interesting shadows are created when they are printed plus the images really capture what is just outside my window.
Once I had compositions that were pleasing I mounted the paper on an extra sheet to add stability and folded it into this paper wallet/birthday gift card enclosure. I put it up in my shop yesterday.
