Child’s Play

Every so often a group I hang with called the Different Drummer gets together to play.  Since we’re quilters fiber artists our idea of play usually involves cloth.  At our latest get together we went back to the childhood technique of coating leaves with paint and pressing them onto cloth.  We also painted plain cloth with transparent paint and tried sprinkling kosher salt on the wet cloth.

We glopped acrylic paint onto plastic plates, poked around the garden for likely looking leaves, and took turns using our custom mixed colors.  Through it all we laughed, a lot.  And here’s what we took home from the party.
