Nature printing, or recreating images from the natural world, is a direct, inexpensive process with possibilities as varied as nature itself. Apply ink or paint to leaves, flowers, herbs, or fruit and print life-sized images onto paper, fabric, and other surfaces to create captivating works of art.
In full-color, simple instructions, NATURE PRINTING covers tools, techniques, and tips for dozens of beautiful projects, including printed fabric for curtains, pillows, linens, quilts, and clothing; stationery, cards, and invitations; nature journals; and more. The book includes instructions for decorative finishes and frames, and it offers nature printing projects for children.

In a nicely packaged format, this slim but helpful guide demonstrates how to capture and preserve the ephemera of nature on paper, for use as framed pictures, stationery, gift wrap, and adornments on fabric, furniture, and walls. In addition to printing with flowers and leaves, the instructions cover the use of fruits, vegetables, feathers, shells, fish, even a spiderweb. Accomplished with various types of inks and paints, the prints have a lovely watercolor quality, a subtle cross between the delicacy of a pressed-flower picture and the look of rubber-stamping.From the Inside Flap:
Praise for Nature Printing
" Stuff you usually compost or toss out with nary a second thought could actually be transformed into things of beauty. [Nature printing is] simple and you don't have to have much in the way of esoteric or expensive materials to make frame-worthy prints, handmade stationery, or gift wrap." (Newsday)
" I mastered [one project] after a five minute flip through [the] book. The photos and drawings are wonderfully easy to follow. I proceeded to decorate every envelope in the house. I couldn't stop! My daughter and I stamped through the entire house." (Darragh Doiron in the Port Arthur (TX) News)
"Just looking at [this book] makes you want to collect supplies and get to work. This is one of the most beautiful books I have seen." (The Chagrin Falls (OH) Valley Times
"Author Laura Donnelly Bethmann has done a wonderful job of revealing the methods behind a centuries-old craft that still appeals to the young and old, regardless of artistic ability." (Akron (OH) Beacon Journal)
"Bethmann has discovered the real connection between the creative self-expression evident in both gardening and painting, and has recognized how nature printing links them both." (Manchester (CT) Journal Inquirer)
