Well, I know you're dying to see how my dyeing came out! After the bundle cooled for several hours, I unwrapped it and opened the pages. Above shows how it looks as I pick off the leaves.
This turned out to be one of my favorite pieces - it was the birch leaves, and I like the gentle colors and just the hint of the shape of the leaves.
Here are all of the sheets as they dried on the table - each pair had one set of leaves. Most had some difference between the top and bottom of the leaf. Usually the bottom shows the shape of the leaf better, while the top is a bit more colorful. I am very happy with the results, although I don't know yet what I will do with them!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
