June’s The Printed Fabric Bee challenge topic was Vintage. Lynn Krawczyk, the queen bee, requested that the 8 x 18 piece could be any color except pink.
Before I show you the collection that will be given away, here is my piece and my process.
I started by researching vintage colors. When I was growing up in the late 50s and 60s green, gold, and orange were popular so I thought I’d use those.
I started with a piece of fabric I had dyed recently that just happened to be the right shade of green. Then I took this vintage looking stencil in my stash – I think it’s called Retro Circles – and mixed up some fabric paint. When I mixed the color I wanted, I stenciled the piece.
Now to add just a little accents of the other two colors: Gold and Orange. I used PROfab Orange 21 opaque paint but it was way too bright. I added some black to make it a duller orange. The gold I used was Lumiere Bright Gold.
Then I applied the paint to the cloth.
Here is my 6 x 6 for the giveaway.
