The Printed Fabric Bee February

forestfloor6inch

I will admit to being distracted with the enraged knee and my solo show painting, so this printing was done very quickly.

Carol Eaton was the queen bee and she chose the forest floor as her theme. I created two therofax screens to represent the Oregon forest floor – pine boughs and pine cones. I chose a dark beige hand dyed fabric for the base and screened the pine boughs first, using dark green and a metallic green.

I didn’t take more photos, but it was pretty basic, anyway.

The six inch give away piece is at the top. Here is the piece going to Carol:

And here is the mosaic of all the pieces that were completed on time.

You can go to Carol’s blog and/or the PFB blog and leave a comment. There are some gorgeous pieces in this collection.
