    Hi, have you tried drawing on muslin with colored sharpie markers? Use rubbing alcohol 90%, brush over areas you want to disfuse and run. Very interesting results. Rinse/wash -gentle and press dry.
    Lots of fun. Moosegirl

    how cool! I've also saw crayons used for doing wall hangings. You can shred them, melt them with a piece of wax paper & wha la it's in the fabric! Cool idea

    I did a few dogwood blossoms that way and have them in a huge hoop. Part of the sharpie difused more than the other. Still cute.

    I like your palm tree best.

    I love this! How do you do it? do you completely draw the picture and fill it in with color? Then what? Do you dig a cotton ball or some kind of brush in alcohol? What kind of brush? Do you use lots of alcohol on it or does it just take a little? CAn you brush over a large area at a time or just one little area of color? I really want to know more details on this as I have never heard of it. I really like the first picture you have posted of the flowers. I am a huge flower gardener and would like to do this technique (as it has my name written all over it!!). Please give me more specific details. Is there a tutorial anywhere on this or where did you learn it? PLEASE give us all more details.
