Nature Printed Journals

Tree Branches 

are used in the binding process...

Cereal Box cardboard is used

to create the cover of the journals...

The cardboard is then covered with

beautiful papers...

The students enjoyed printing with paints

and natural objects...

Printing with craft paint and feathers...

Feathers print so lovely...

Ferns....another favorite for printing

A printed fern adorns the

cover of the journal...


Real leaves were used

to create sponge leaf stamps...

The leaf sponge creates a wonder texture

when stamped with paints...
