I did some more leaf printing yesterday and I thought I would show you how the pattern is built up.
The first layer of print is the basic leaf shape repeated to fill the fabric. The next stage is to use the fill in block, not exactly the same shape which is purposeful. Next I emphasized the leaf stem and used the same block to add interest to the background. On top of this is another print of the basic leaf block in a darker colour and the background is brushed with ink with a stiff brush also to add interest.The finished piece
Rather yummy I think! 🙂
