What Does Yardsale, Shop and Stop,Classic Car Show and EcoPrinting have in common ?
The Tiadaghton House  in Lebanon Illinois was a perfect spot to spectate a day long of all those events.  I perched my pop up studio on the Tiadaghton porch and printed away amongst the "goings ons" what a great fun day demonstrating and talking with people about the abundance of beautiful Southern Illinois leaf types suitable for ecoprinting.

The Tiadaghton House was the perfect spot for rolling aas well as cooking bundles. By Stop -n-Shop time i was unrolling processed bundles and stringing them across the front railing to dry.  
[click on the image it will zoom in bigger you can see a few of the shirts I have drying on the rails]


I had been reading posts from printing with nature friends' experiments with peony leaves so of course that was in my selection of leaves.

Found some false indigo and vined bloomers in the Tiadaghton courtyard too.
I achieved some lovely effects from using technique and additives as I mentioned in previous blog posts of working with iron and  copper,

Truly a great happening day from beginning to end, I mean just look at the classics lined up,  fantastic event day for brickstreet  was really fun to be a part of it.
