  1. I think it's sprinkling loose leaf tea through a stencil.

  2. Wow! Great guess, Kira! How about, a stencil overlay with sandpaper underneath as you roll the dye on with the brayer. I know that is not true, but it looks like dyed sand sprinkled on to the stencil. Then the stencil was moved and overlaid and sprinkled again.

  3. How about a stencil on top and Tim Holtz Walnut Oil spray spritzed over the stencil (but I do like the sandpaper suggestion.)

  6. Leaf stencils over sprayed with dye using some kind of spray bottle or dye on a toothbrush used to splatter dye over the stencils.

  7. What intrigues me is that the colour particles all seem evenly shaped and there doesn't seem to be any spreading or blending of the colour. So I'm thinking it must be a wet-on-dry or dry-on-dry technique. Possibilities include powdered paint or dye (like colour burst) applied over 2 stencils awaiting activation by water. Or ground pastels over 2 stencils awaiting heat to activate.

  8. Picking the first person to answer correctly means that those in an earlier time zone have an advantage.

    1. Hi CoyoteBarks. Someone pointed this out the first mystery so we changed it. Now all the correct answers are put in a hat and one of them is chosen to be the winner. If there is no correct answer, the closest or most creative answer wins! All guessers will then be put into a hat and one will be chosen to win a download of the book about this technique the end of February.

  9. Love this, whatever technique was used. It is neat to see all the suggestions. As I am new at the creation of cloth effects, I thought the leaves were made using very light (organza?) cut like stencils and then layered so that the white stood out. I thought rust at first but it was too controlled and sand-like. Stumped on how this effect was achieved as water would have made paint or dye run. So, I think it might have been misted onto the fabric-in a controlled way with several color applications and drying in between?

  10. leaf stencils overlaid and sprinkled with iron filings and allowed to rust. Probably an agent such as vinegar was involved.

  13. I'm not sure what it is but I want to know how to do it! Looks like some freezer paper stencil, rusted fabric or sprayed...you can see the white tip under the leaf is 'clean'....so I'm really confused!
