Dyeing and my re-arranged Art room!

As l had no students yesterday...l dyed like mad!Ha! Then had a fun time unwrapping my latest bundles. I am so pleased with them and my paper and canvas bundles. My new drying rack is proving to be fantastic.
This first image shows what was bundled on this piece of watercolour paper.
This image shows you what marks were left when the leaves and "stuff" were taken off it!..yummy!
This is a piece of canvas paper l am trying......not as impressive but still interesting none the less. "windfall flower" silk pieces look as if they may well be quite good too.

Another piece of watercolour paper.....
and afterwards. I tried for the first time dyeing with dried orange slices.
A very rusty piece of metal from a beautifully.
Metal removed.

Bits of dried orange slices being used in my dyeing again. 
Liked the results.

This looks like a piece of Abstract it.

Another piece of watercoloured paper, which was boiled with wood clamped to each side. Like the end result.

Silk, watercoloured paper, canvas paper, wool and cotton drying. I am so pleased with this batch.

I have re-arranged my main Art room and it worked much better today.

Looks like a drying rack gives the opportunity to try different mediums. I like the orange peels.
