Brushes from Nature...

Creating Handcrafted Brushes

from natural objects...

We gathered various botanicals...

My botanicals were mostly weeds that I picked 

along the road side

as we moved the cattle this morning...

The Art Sisters are at the Quilt Palace

getting crazy with handcrafting brushes!



Old Man's Beard Lichen



It is quite joyful creating marks

with objects from nature...

Circles are always a favorite!

Here are the brushes I created...

The fern brush created tree shapes

The feather created broad strokes

The stems created tiny strokes

The foxgloves created bold circles

The pine needles also made great circles

I thoroughly enjoyed testing out all of the

nature brushes on fabric.

All of our brushes drying in a pitcher...

makes a beautiful display!
