A plump issue of the Sunday New York Times, a gray and rainy day, and perhaps one too many cups of coffee turned out to be the perfect combination of ingredients for a fast and fashionable recycling project. Pour yourself a cup of joe, finish the crossword puzzle, and get busy weaving.
A simple blossom is pressed into service as both ink and printing plate. This fast and easy process gives new meaning to the term "botanical print" and is a wonderful way to capture the fleeting beauty of flowers.
Take a break from the straight and narrow and free yourself up to make some mistakes. Today, try setting aside your scissors and focus, instead, on torn paper, soft edges, and coloring outside the lines.
