paper prints on river rocks

River rocks make a great base for steaming if you ran out of steaming tray. That was what I did when I couldn’t find my steaming trays. An idea came to mind, when I saw a bucket of rocks that I brought home from our son’s house. I looked for the ones that has a flat surface and placed enough rocks to make a flat layer in the bottom of the pot; filled with water before putting my wrapped bundle of paper with plant materials to steam. Below are pictures of prints made with castor bean and scented geranium.
