Nostalgic Blooms From The Past



Yesterday when I was rummaging through a pile of my ol stuff I came across these wonderful flowers I had created some 12 years back. These, my friends, are fabric paiting. I had actually cut this piece of cloth from my dad's uniform cloth...It was indeed my first attempt at painting on fabric. In the first picture you could see that the paint had spread a bit coz I wasn't sure on how much to dip water.



Different styles are shown here.



The first one here is done with a bean cut.  A bean cut into two and dipped in paint and dabbed on cloth.
Haven't painted on fabric for a very long time.  I should be doing that soon:)
More to follow...

Happy Blooming Tuesday!

Wow, what a great idea and how beautiful your work looks. Great job Deepaz. I have to try that out. Thanks for the great idea. I'll have to write this down in my journal so that I can remember how to do it. Beautiful, thanks for sharing. Have a great Tuesday.

WOW...painting with a bean??? How cool is that? It would be fun to see more if you do some and explain how you do it!

I remember seeing my mom do fabric painting a long time back too.

Should urge her to pick it up again. Should never let talent die out, right?

These were lovely. Who doesn't like looking at flowers? :)
