Alphabet Number 2

So here are the first 4 letters of my second alphabet
Which for me is the dotty one

These are tea bags

The letters are printed by cutting the shapes out of
Eucalyptus cinerea leaves

painting them with a little diluted egg yolk

and then clamping them with round metal lids
before boiling them for an hour or so
I had hoped the circle would print more prominently
but it did not so instead my dots have been
made by burning with an incense stick
x te


  1. What an incredibly creative idea! That's a lot of work ahead of you for this alpha, but it's going to look so cool!

  2. Well, this is amazing! I love the materials you're using-things I would never think of, and they are so beautiful, I can't wait to see more.

  3. Trace, you are amazing.....such a process... and wonderful results.

  4. love the inventiveness.....great and woman after me own heart! great dye job! I want to try in now!
