{Erosion Bundle part III ~ I think}...

I've decided what I will do with my Erosion Bundle.
I'm make an Art Journal with it. 
Not a big surprise I know.
But it's something I can get excited about. 
I plan on it being a journal based on the flowers from my garden this year.
Along with some poetry and meaningful words for the year.
Here are the newly washed colors.
Also no surprise, their lighter.
But I like them.  Their a really nice shade of blue gray and
a purple piece.  The pieces that were treated for printing are the lighter blue gray while the untreated piece remained a fairly dark purple.

{what ifing and my erosion bundle}...

I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to do something with my erosion bundle.
Nothing seems to get me excited about using it.
So back in the pot it went.  This time with some of the blueberries
left over from my smoothie.
First I boiled the blueberries
then left the fabric to soak in the pot for a few hours.
This time I'm letting it hang and dry for a few days before rinsing it.
As I've been having trouble keeping much color in the cloth.

I really love the color.  But I haven't rinsed it yet.
SO we'll see how much color stays in.
I like these top two best. I had already treated the fabric for printing before
deciding to do the blueberry soak.  So what if ,   what if I left the treated fabric alone.
I did and so far I'm glad I did.

"When I don't hear from him, it's as if i died."
When I watched this video my heart wept knowing that within me, I too, have felt this way.

I will now have to find out more about this movie?
