More flower-progress

Yes, one kind of the new flowers I`m developing is going to be handpainted. :)
It was the time to start making my own “printed” textiles, don´t you think? This is just a small approach to this matter, this project is just for decorative purposes and it is not going to be washed, so this time I have used common watercolours.

It has worked great with blues, but I`m not convinced with the yellows and oranges. I think I am going to try to do it again with a very watery fabric paint.
The fabric I`m using is cheesecloth, I really like this absolutely humble textile and I`m willing to take it to many different levels. Apart from painting, I want to dye it. Can`t wait to have enough time and avocados to try this way to turn it pink. Maybe I need to plan a guacamole party XD

*If you are interested in natural dyes, I highly recommend Rebecca Desnos. Her blog has lots of examples and experiments with lovely pictures.
