New Project, part 2

Here is the second piece of fabric that I drew at the FANE meeting. Fran painted her piece a solid bright green.  I found it to be challenging.  I tried stenciling with Shiva paint sticks and they didn't show enough, I tried using paint on the stencils and that looked messy.  I tried spraying, also messy.




So this was my solution.  I drew circles on the cloth with a white chalk pencil and then painted dots all around each circle using a pencil eraser.




And look at the lovely surprise when I lifted the cloth. What was I thinking?  I should have put down a plastic drop cloth. Now I have these circles as a permanent reminder of this project.  And no, they don't wash off.
