This is the first in a series of fabric pictures I'm working on, using the fabric I hand painted a few weeks ago. This floral is fused, machine appliqued and stitched, and hand beaded.
I love the colors that can be obtained from Setacolor transparent fabric paint. In this piece, I loosely painted flowers and leaves on white cotton, heat set the fabric, then cut out blossoms and arranged them in the painted vase.
Maybe I was inspired by thoughts of the colorful flowers that will soon be blooming in our gardens!
