Eco-Printing and Art Dolls

My newest passion is eco-printing!  I love that you can take leaves and flowers from your own garden and print them directly onto fabric.  Here are two of my newest eco-printed dolls, which will debut at the International Quilt Festival this year in the TAODA "Past and Present" art doll exhibit. 

Remembrance and Anticipation

Both pieces are made with hand dyed silk satin, silk gauze and pearl cotton braid.

Remembrance is printed with oak leaves, which symbolizes strength and stability.  

Anticipation is printed with Chinese tallow and chinaberry leaves, symbolizing radiance and hope.
