And then the leaf print appeared

This was the second eco dyed cotton piece and on this one I had used some liquidamber leaves. When I had washed and dried the fabric I oould not see any leaf impressions but when I ironed it the faint outlines of the liquid amber appeared like ghost images. I just got Alic Fox's book and in it she talks about walnut ink so I am boiling up the windfall walnuts and husks (we are in the Autumn equinox at the oment) to make the ink and I will the ntry and enhance these shadows and then decide where to go from there
