They will show us 2 ways of transferring images to paper. 1. Eco Prints – using steam  to transfer images from plants and flowers to paper. 2. Using rusty objects to create a rusted image on paper or fabric. Both will give you unique patterned papers to use for collage, mixed media, and cards. The possibilities are endless.
