These days are irresistible!  I had to go outdoors again.

The sun was shining.  The birds were chirping… and I was sunprinting again, only this time, with Jacquard’s Dye-Na-Flow.

Here’s a link to a quick and easy tutorial for sunprinting with Dye-Na-Flow:

She used a stencil but I used real, freshly picked plants here.  Let me know if you have any questions about the process.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  2. I have a houseful of kids due here in a day. This looks like a good, creative activity without being too stressful to the creator. We might give it a try… Your samples are beautiful!

  3. I just tried dye-na-flow for the first time for sunprinting. I loved the bright colours and got crisp outlines. Except with yellow…it tended to leave a pale yellow stain where it should have been white(working with white fabric!)
