I had a chance the other day to make a couple of Artist Trading Cards.
I had the urge to create something so bad. I didn't want to mess around with finding the perfect supplies or images so I rummaged through the stuff laying around on my work table and made these two atc's with what I had on hand.
The second one is my favorite! I really love the way this one turned out.
Yesterday I dyed some fabric, lace and trim with some lemon balm leaves and stems that I needed to trim. I didn't want it to go to waste. Last year I dyed some other fabric and was really happy with the way it turned out. Sorry no pictures of the dyed fabric right now. If I get a chance I will take a few and then compare the two batches of fabrics. Last year I used the new growth on the plant and I really think that fabric dyed a darker color.
I forgot how much I enjoy dying fabric with natural dyes. I think I may try to use some leaves off an orange tree to see if that will impart a decent dye.
Thanks for stopping by!
