    Like many families, my sister planted a tree to commemorate the life of a family member lost to cancer, "Dan's Tree." Ten years later, she used the leaves from that tree to print scarves for all of Dan's family. A lovely gesture, much appreciated.

    What a lovely thing to do! I have Troy's tree, for my son who passed away in 2003. This year he would have been Grandpa! Maybe I could do the same for his son, daughter and new grandson. What a great idea!

    Wonderful thing to do. Is there a tutorial available on this technique or a link to method? I'd love to learn how to do this.

    This is very lovely but you can get started with tempera or acrylic on paper, textile paint on cloth, etc. I brush the paint on a leaf, on a piece of old newspaper. Cover with more old newspaper & rub with fingers or a brayer. Lift up, that's it. Nice to do outside. Don't feel you have to invest in snazzy materials until you get the feel of it. Then have fun at Dharma Trading!

    You can print leaves on fabric with a positive image (relief printing) http://artfulparent.typepad.com/artf...on-fabric.html

    or a negative image (sun printing)
