Ombre Leaves

Like many fiber artist, I dye a lot of my own fabrics and trims. One effect that I work hard to achieve is to have them shade gently and gradually from light to dark or from one color to another. This ombre effect takes a certain amount of skill. In the autumn, Mother Nature reminds us that she is the ultimate expert at this. On a rainy day, I looked at these leave with their mix of colors both bright and subtle, noting the soft greens that calm down the brighter hues. I’ll store this in back of my mind for the next dyeing session.
