Happy new year, readers! It's been a long time between posts, I know! I've been very busy with non-birthy things, lately. In December our baby celebrated her 1st birthday! And New Years Day marked one year since her lotus birth. Long term followers might remember that on the one year anniversary of our eldest daughter's lotus birth we defrosted her placenta and finally got to creating some placenta prints. We decided to carry on the ritual with our younger daughter.
In addition to the paint, placenta and blood on canvas, this time I also stuck some of the left over bamboo yarn from my blessingway into the paint. I'm pleased with how it turned out. I could stand in front of it for hours, marveling at the colour combos and pattern.
To see our other placenta prints click here (also includes links to other tutorials and images online).
Happy New Year!
