Here are some more botanical imprints on leather and I made into purses.
The delicate prints on leather with the plants I got on biking or from friends. Just like to do leather prints with only a few seasonal plants that are easily get.
The most common for the yellow prints is passion fruit leaf and casaurina printed like embossed.
The day I was biking in the lane lined with casaurina....
....and the house next to my rural studio were passion fruit on the fence. The dog knew I wanted to do experiments only with the leaves. He's not barking.
Apart from passion fruit leaf I like to do prints with Chinese Hibiscus, Lagerstroemia speciosa, Lemmon marigold, willow and some small unknown species. They work well for my simple leather prints.
Shades of yellow and blue ..... unwrapping is always so exciting....

A few leather purses made with the sample prints. I always do small pieces of leather prints so that the purses made with the swatches are palm size and so soft.
I hope to show the prints just as reference and get inspired.
Photos speak themselves.........
Photos of "Before & After" is my good reference
This is the most recent one made with prints and dyes. Just like pink from cochinael.
