This is a flowering crab , ornamental which the birds enjoy the fruit in the fall .
Next to the crab are three apple trees that bear lots of beautiful apples but the past few years have worms .
We have had a few days of sunshine and nice temperatures so yesterday I tried something I had not done before , Sun printing . I have wanted to try this for such a long time but I live in an area where it is almost always windy but yesterday the wind was almost nil so I grabbed the chance . Now my wrist was somewhat a problem in this process as I had wanted to use my seta colour paints but no way could I get that top off . What did I do , well I have some cheap acrylic paints that have a flip top so I figured this is just an experiment so lets see if it works . I took a piece of plain cotton and watered down the green paint then made my fabric damp with a spray bottle (not easy either ) , then I painted the fabric all over with the paint using a foam brush , then I took my gathered leaves and placed them on the fabric adding paint on top to hopefully hold them down while the paint dried . I left this sitting in the sun for an hour or more and when I returned I knew things had changed as the leaves were all shriveled and I could see white underneath. Want to see ?
Thanks for the visit and have a great day.
