I don't know about you, but I've learned a lot this month. As I mentioned earlier, I'm really partial to Dye-Na-Flow and Setacolor, but Robbie's experiments with SolarFast have me interested in trying it. I've not had much luck with lace, but after seeing LuAnn's pieces, I think I really need to experiment again and loved her cheesecloth and plastic wrap fabrics. Lastly, Sue's preservation of botanicals is a technique I will definitely try with my ferns, and my hubby's winter plants might have to move over so I can put some of my pieces under those grow lights.
I'll leave you with a few more of my sun printed pieces.

One of my blog readers emailed me a couple years ago asking if I ever used Dye-na-Flow for sun printing. I told her I'd try it and if I liked it I'd write a short tutorial for her to hand out to her group for their next play time. Anyway, here is the link to my blog post about Dye-na-Flow with the link to that pdf at the very bottom. I couldn't post it on this blog for some reason.

Thank you LuAnn, Robbie, and Sue for helping me with this month's topic. I hope our posts this month have inspired you to get out and sun print.
And now I can't wait to see what Judy has in store for us in July.
