I was so inspired by our trip into the Petrified Forest. We saw leaf fossils and picked up tiny shards of petrified wood. I want to do a series inspired by that trip.
First step is designing the fabric!
The piece above was a rather unsuccessful pink piece that I overpainted.
Below, I began with white cotton and saturated it with paints. I was planning to create something resembling the leaf fossils and wildflower colors we saw in the Petrified Forest.
I used Setacolor Transparent fabric paints.
I gathered leaves from my yard and placed them on the wet fabric as the sun came up over the hill. . . .
