These are stems from Beech Mushrooms I used as a stamp to make a print. Never a dull moment at our house, I do get inspiration from the strangest places, and my hubby just goes along with me.

We had a beautiful bunch a fresh beets and decided to roast them for dinner. The liquid from them was the most incredible color and I couldn't throw it out. So I grabbed a piece of paper and dyed it with the juice. The shibori piece was created by wrapping the paper around a paint stirrer and scrunching it down and holding it with a rubber band. I don't know how colorfast it will be, but I love the way it came out.
