Printed Fabric Bee Giveaway #5

Well, it’s that time again for another Printed Fabric Bee giveaway!

Printed Bee Collage

This month Carol requested a 12 x 12 inch square of fabric of our interpretation of the colors and textures found in woodlands. When I think of woodlands, I think green. And since I’ve been a bit obsessed with palms since our last trip to Hawaii I wanted to include palms in my woodlands piece.

I usually start out with plain white fabric, but I found some lovely white printed fabric that I just had to use it. I dyed it with ink (check out this link), and then created a palm stencil with my Silhouette Portrait from one of the artificial palms I found at Joanns.

Using screen printing ink, I stenciled the palm onto the fabric leaving an opening since woodlands always have an opening for sun to shine through (or they do in my interpretation!).
