A Bit of Sun Dying - Stage 1

Method taught by Lisa, Dyed and Gone to Heaven, at her workshop.
White fabric, soaked until wet through.
A mixture of sun dying paints.
 Found this place mat in Daiso, Swanston Street, Melbourne.
Placed it over the wet painted fabric to dry in the sun.
Not a sharp contrast, I shouldn't have watered down the paint so much.
Pleased with it, will stamp and stencil over pieces.
Leaves from the garden.
The black spots are from the pin prick holes.
The pink colour is from clearing the paint off the brush.

The stencils didn't work as well as I hoped but with over painting, stamping etc, it should be ok.
