HAPPY HOLIDAYS, 2014!Crafting Holiday cards has been a tradition in our family since ~1998. Most of the cards are on display on a website, clicking on recent ones (2010 onward) provide links to how they were made. This year, Heidi pushed me away from the art board. To make this beautiful rendition of a Poinsettia plant, she blended her photography, batiking, and design skills. Here is how she did it:
- Masking & Dying & Drying (mask lightest areas first..i.e. white, pink, etc.)
- Applying new masks... Mask On Areas Desired To Be Lighter/Pinker…
- Repeat...darkening the exposed areas
Cool Update: The McCrone Research group's card also features a poinsettia!
