Bleach Stamped Paper



Bleach Stamped Paper.....



I took a frond off the fern in the back yard, dipped it in a shallow tray of bleach and pressed it onto sheets of paper.... fun and the results are quite striking.



A bit of a smelly job though! I had to air the kitchen off afterwards and of course you must wear old clothes in case you get any drips on you....



But an easy task. If you have childeren you might prefer the traditional washable paint option rather than bleach, I can't say I blame you :)

Starry, this is a great idea. I must remember it for when I am up to doing some craft.
Thank you for my very special message my dearest friend.

Hello starry!
Thanks for viewing my blog, haha it is definitely the very beginning of my blogging for my fashion career, so I do plan on putting more things onto the site!

I really like your creative ideas with the paper, they turn out very beautiful. Hope to see more of your creations!

Beautiful! My girlfriend and I took denim aprons, some time ago, and chunky rubber stamps and pressed the stamps onto sponges soaked with bleach, then stamped onto the aprons carefully. They turned out great! So fun to do with simple things.

Hugs, Sherry

Susan D, I am laughing because at my original blogsite here in Australia I told everyone up front that I am seriously not the best crafter, really, all my projects are easy because I am a bumbling, bungling crafter!
Thanks for popping in, best wishes, Starry

Hi Sherry,
I bet the bleached denim looked so striking, I have used bleach on my stamps before but only on card and paper. I love making denim creations though maybe I can embellish one of my jackets?
I hope you are having a beautiful spring week,

Oh! I like this! I've only bleached using rubber stamps. I'll have to remember to try this when we have leaves on the trees again. Thanks for sharing that! :)
