I chose to use eucalyptus leaves, rose leaves, rose flowers and ferns when creating this scarf.  I wanted to see if I could add a lot of depth to the scarf by creating some blurred double images against the very intricate and strong colors of some of the leaves.  I also wanted to create a "wash" of the iron mordant that would give it a "painted" quality.  The silk was steamed in an iron mordant bath for 3 hours and I think the results are stunning!  The eucalyptus developed a very strong orange color while the ferns were light green but with amazing texture.  The rose leaves came out green and gray.
