    I had a ton of left over easter scraps a few years ago, all pastel and they are NOT my thing then I got this idea from a book on snippet art? forget who made it.. this is what I came up with to use a bit of them up.

    Not knowing what snippets are I am wondering if you did that free hand? That is awesome.

    Thank you everyone.. I have been thinking.. show it.. dont show it.. artist insecurity as my hubby is not fond of it much. I don't paint much, more for play with water colors and can not draw anything real at all.. I toss most things I draw. Fabric is fun, and forgiving so I would rather paint with cotton!. Easiest technique ever.. a bit of wonder under on fabric, a pair of scissors and your on your way..
