Beating in the Colour

Natural calico pleated with leaf, bashed with a hammer, singed and plunged in water.
I like that the leaf shape is broken up but that it is clear where the veins continue. The water marking on the right hand side adds a subtle dimension.
I'm looking forward to experimenting with coloured flowers next and trying out more ideas from India Flint's book 'Eco Colour'. I like her idea of making small pockets that can be carried around to pick up colour when travelling. She suggests buttoning them onto clothing to create a changeable outfit and novel souvenir. I may be adding a hammer to my handbag...
