Description

This paper pack contains 10 original ecoprints I made with ginkgo leaves and natural logwood and madder dyes on a variety of papers including watercolour paper, mixed media paper and sheet music. Each of these pieces will be at least 7.5 inches by 5inches (20cm x 12.5cm) and some may be larger. The papers in this pack would be great for junk journals, mixed media collage, card making and more. Embellish them with paints and inks or leave them as they are and turn them into the covers of small notebooks, bookmarks, note cards, gift tags and more. Every paper pack is unique and all the papers are hand printed.

The distinctive fan-shaped ginkgo leaf is a symbol of longevity because the tree can live for a thousand years and a symbol of profound endurance because four ginkgos survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today.

Ecoprinting – also called botanical contact printing – is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. Every print is unique and all the colors come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints.
