Dreamy Skies

Yesterday I did some fabric painting, using Setacolor transparent paints. I enjoy doing this so much, I feel like I should do it every morning to set a wonderful mood for the day! But, of course it's not always convenient!

I was concentrating on painting skies for some new landscapes, and I started out using some prewashed cotton white-on-white prints. Putting a wash of transparent color over the subtle print, for me, makes a dreamy and whimsical sky. The reverse side of the fabric is even more subtle.

Of course, I had to play with some salt, for a dramatic effect!


Combined with some earthy fabrics I had painted previously, the new pieces should make for some 
interesting landscapes. Time to start cutting and fusing!

Salt is amazing. I have done some silk painting and it does the same thing. Those greens are fantastic!

You are off to a great start:)

Judy this is so cool! I am loving the colors and texture the salt makes!
