The second round of fabric manipulation was some experimenting with fabric paint and various household objects. I watered down the paint quite a bit so that the effect became almost batik or watercolor like. I like the effect for this project but I would like to keep experimenting for different results.
These circles were made with the lid of a ball jar and the small circles with the cap from the fabric paint.
It was such a nice weekend I'm glad I had a few minutes to work on this while Eliot was busy digging in his dirt pile and tossing tennis balls on the roof. I just love this birch tree, too. Gives nice dappled shade and the birds have a great time singing up there. Plus it doubled as a laundry line for this project!
