Start with a piece of fabric - I started with this white on white that already had a pattern on it.
Then go back and print again, but not on the top third of the fabric.
Then print again over the bottom third until you are happy with it.
I found this process really freeing. There is something about over printing - not worrying about smudges. I really liked that piece, but I thought I'd try it with some paint cloths that have been waiting in the wings for me to play with.
And a closeup
That was so much fun! I really like the look. I'll definitely be playing with this technique in future projects. What about you? Have you tried this?
See you next Friday with a technique from Fabric Surface Design by Cheryl Rezendes.
