Playing with botanical prints with different leaves, I painted the scenery......
Assorted leaves give shades but I wanted it with "living things".
Cut the cow shape on a leaf......
A Mogi shape on another leaf
I set four pieces scenery "picture", each with different leaves incl. rose and assorted euc as well pines. Two with cat shapes and two with cows.
I cut cow shapes on euc and "India rubber" leaves .
After all set on the silk fabrics then bundle boiled for 1.5 hours in clear water.
Cows of different leaves but only the eucalyptus is bold and brown I wanted.
No harm, the other painting with cats are not bad.
Each of the printing are two folded, i.e. mirror print.
Got four pieces of the experiments of "scenery painting", I can't wait to do the tote bags with them. Grasped the cotton fabric, cut it, sewed it..... all done in the weekend......
with his supervision
The four tote bags, 2-sided and reversible. Same size, each 36 cm x 37cm with lining and 2 internal pockets.
Tote bags for grocery, book carrier or whatever purposes.
Love the cats, love the cows. They're my creation inspiration. I recalled the day I visited a friend in Lantau (大嶼山 水口村), there're lots of wild cows. I just love them roaming (last post). Coming Friday I'll go hiking with a group and will be there . Hope to see some cows again.
Right after I posted the printing on facebook, a friend Lisa already bought this bag because she loves cats. Thanks Lisa for making this "fast moving item"
"Mum, it's midnight, I'm tired. ZZzzzzzzzz"
Until next time.
