Decorate Your Life with Nature's Patterns
Transfer the beauty of freshly gathered natural treasures onto paper, pillows, chairs, draperies, clothing, and even ceramics. It's easy and inexpensive to begin. With a few basic supplies, you can apply green ink to blades of grass and plant a meadow on a fresh, white pillow. And that's just one of 50 gorgeous projects featured in Hand Printing from Nature. Author Laura Bethmann introduces her simple techniques and offers step-by-step instructions to get you started, but there's no limit to what you can create with nature as your inspiration.
