I started off with a purple hand dyed piece of fabric and ironed the freezer paper stencil, painted with the discharge paint and this was my piece below after the discharge paint dried and the piece was heated.
I did go a little nuts with my brush and kept thinking that it was just going to look like a painted black piece. So, I ironed the stencil back on my fabric, grabbed my Clorox bleach pen and squeezed out some of the solution, brushed it on some of the square areas and even put some on top of the decolorant!
The Kemshall mother/daughter team are amazing and certainly get your creative juices flowing when you watch them work or look at their quilts. I'm still working on my other 'tree' but with the rain today, this project was great for just sitting and hand stitching!! Tomorrow is breakfast with all the kids to celebrate Mother's Day! Hope all you mom's out there have a great day!!!
