Playing with Fabric and Color

I have been playing with dyeing, painting, screen printing, stamping, rubbing, stenciling on fabric, then adding embroidery.
I have used Procion MX dyes to dye fabric, then added some screen printed blocks and motifs.

This sample was made using Shiva Artists Paintsticks and rubbing over Cedar Canyon Textiles rubbing plates, using round stencils cut from freezer paper on the Silhouette Cameo machine.
Having far too much fun! I didn’t know when to stop, so am afraid that it is a touch overdone. Initially it looked far too busy.
So I digitized some circular embroidery designs and stitched them over the outlines of the circles – now it looks a lot better!
