~ STILL LIFE ~ Dried Roses

It has been months since I have been able to create a Still Life because of my leg injury, so as I was looking thru some of my older files..I came across this..

I wanted to share it with you...

Gorgeous! I love the technique you use to create your 'watercolors'. Beautiful.

Rose....printing on had a question! Happy to answer! Tre' simple! Cut a piece of freezer paper (you know, the kind with the waxy side) to 8.5 x 11". Iron it (waxy side down) onto a piece of lightweight muslin. Then trim the muslin even with the edges of the freezer paper. Iron it again to make certain it is adhered well. Then, put it on your printer or copier's paper tray (probably with fabric side down if that's the side your printer prints on) and just either print or copy whatever you've put on your scanner bed. Both my computer printer and my color copier are ink jet printers. So the print may not be water resistant and washable. I "set" my prints with a dry iron after I peel the freezer paper from the backs. I hope this explains it. It's a very easy process! Just takes a little time to trim the freezer paper and the muslin to the edges.
Let me know if you try something! Would love to see it!

The white battenburg lace with the blooms is lovely.
