You saw some of the drawing that I did. But there is more.
I drew the following images and tweaked them in PSE (Photoshop Elements) (making the lines fatter and more graphic).
Like this -
One screen printed the color of the flower or leaf and the other screen printed the outline, enabling me to use all kinds of funky colors.
I used a piece of paper that I bought long ago (but liked the pattern on it) as a guide, I laid a pattern that was pleasing to me.
Here's a couple of shots of the project in progress.

before screen printing.
|Wonderful sparkly gold paint.|
|It looks beautiful after I add the outline.|
|I tried several different brands of fabric paint on this project.|
|Adding the pink background|
I really don't have an idea of what I will use the painted fabric for - I just created it to stay inspired while was feeling particularly uninspired.
Sounds ridiculous but this is the type of thing I do to keep the creative muscles pumping.
Kinda like priming the pump to get the water flowing, ya know?
