Last week I was painting fabric, trying to get the right green for the leaves of water lillies. I painted cotton and rayon lining material. I've ended up using the cotton in this piece, and I'm at the, " putting it together phase!" It's still at the sewing machine, but have a look. I layered pieces to get a dark water look......I hope. Say tuned. My husband said very little when I said, "Come look at this." That means he doesn't like it, but is not trying to discourage me. I think he wanted to give it a, "two thumbs down award!"
