Leaf printing in stages

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.Leaves 1 The next stage is to use the fill in block, not exactly the same shape which is purposeful.Leaves 2 Next I emphasized the leaf stem and used the same block to add interest to the background.Leaves 3 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.Leaves 4The finished pieceLeaves 5

Rather yummy I think! 🙂
