Mono Printed Patio

We recently had our back garden renovated and my fantastic contractor, knowing that I’m an artist and open to new ideas, suggested we add plant imprints to our patios. Here is a photo of one of the patios. The effect of the stain binding with the concrete but not with the leaf imprints creates a surface that looks like dyed or painted fabric with mono printing. I love the results… What do you think?

Patio imprints.

By Ann Scott

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
