This month’s Printed Fabric Bee’s queen Carol Eaton chose as our challenge “The Forest Floor.” We could choose whatever colors we wanted to use.
Here is the collection of giveaway fabric. See giveaway information below.
I started with a piece of fabric I had low immersion dyed with turquoise and orange.
Next I stenciled the fern leaves all over the piece. Usually I like to make my own stencils, but I had this fern one in my stash. I used SetaColor Opaque Sanguine #51.
I wanted to add some highlights, so I stamped a few more ferns on the fabric with Jacquard Lumiere Metallic Copper.
I love Jacquard Lumiere. They are just so pretty. I used them on that stole I made for Ange.
And here is the finished piece. I really thought about adding some spots of silver as I did in my practice pieces, but decided against it. I really liked the piece as it was.
Here is my giveaway 6 x 6 piece.
If you’d love to win this collection of 6 x 6 inch fabrics, just leave a comment on Carol’s blog or on the Printed Fabric Bee blog post. Deadline is March 15. Once you have commented, stop by the other members’ blogs to see how they created their pieces. Good Luck!
Lynda… stunning as always. This will be fun to watch!
Lynda, this is gorgeous! Really love your colors and the overlapping ferns are beautiful!
Love yours, thanks for showing how you did it. The red really pops! Judy
having a hard time commenting on Carol’s blog, not sure why it is different.
Judy, Thanks! I see where you had commented on Carol’s blog. Good luck!
Your posts always excite and inspire me to stay creative. I’ve learned so much just seeing the posts of such talented fabric artists.
This is very pretty Lynda. I have some Jacquard Lumiere Metallics also, I add them in mediums to my paintings. How do you get it to stay on fabric? Mine is like powder. Maybe it’s not the same thing. All the fabric pieces are beautiful, the theme “forest floor” is near and dear to my heart. I have a painting named that and always get painting inspiration with what grows or lands on the forest floor!
Jaime Haney recently posted..Are you an Artist?
Lee, Thank you for your kind words. I love to inspire.
Hi Jaime, The Jacquard Lumiere I use is for fabric and is liquid – sort of a pudding texture. It’s great for screen printing and stenciling. I love how it looks on fabric.
This is fabulous! and I would surely love to win even one block of it!!!
I am getting so many ideas here.
Bonnie, It is a fabulous collection. Hope you went to Carol’s blog to comment. Good luck!
MJ, Great! It’s always fun to see how everyone interprets the challenges.
