Second Round RR
I looked at Carol C's fabric for a while wondering what to do, it is quite terrifying, the thought of working on someone else's fabric, I had thought of using a fern stamp as Carol said the colours were inspired by the view from her window. in the end I decided to try out my new thermofax screens, had them a few months and kept putting off trying them out, so I finally jumped in.
I have a case of Jacquard paints, the Sherrill Khan set, another thing I have had too long and been much too precious with, some of the paints had hardened.
Had a little try of small dabs of paint on the sample fabric, to see which colours I liked and settled on a Pearl Blue Lumiere and Turquoise Neopaque fabric paints.
I used part of one screen and put butterfly's scattered around, the sample ones came out great but some on the main fabric did not register the total image, more my fault than the screen, I then scattered a few dragonfly images, I had to force myself to stop as by this time I was really enjoying myself. hubby is not here to take a pic, but I have scanned a small section, to give an idea of what it is like.
