and comment to win!
Here are some pictures of my fabric and the process:
I started off with hand dyed fabric:
Then I screened on some discharge paste with a thermofax screen with an Echinacea pattern:
Then I printed again with a rich brown paint and offset the design slightly:
And also painted the centres of the flower with a cobalt blue paint for some highlights. I also added trios of mini dots all over the fabric. they are hard to see but show up better in the fabric sample that will be part of the Giveaway! So don't forget to enter!

This is absolutely beautiful Susan - the colours and the motif and design all work so well together. Really like it and so interesting to see the process.
