Spring Sunprints —SCB

This week I preserved a bit of spring with Sunprints. The cyanotype paper is crazy-easy to use and creates all kinds of happy accidents.

Collect armfuls of blooms. More than you need. Allow yourself some floral excess.

Arrange the blossoms between the reactive paper and glass.

Expose to the sun for a few minutes. Cross your fingers that the sun won’t suddenly hide behind a cloud. Just give me four consecutive minutes of sun, Oregon.

Rinse in running water, allow to dry, hang up at your bedside, write a love letter on the back, wrap up a present. Admire the pretty mess you made.

Make sure to use all the leftover unsmooshed bits to their best advantage. Happy spring!
