The next experiment

I 'painted' this with Fabrico pencils after drawing with the blue wash-away pen first. 
Today I am going to first wash the fabric..hoping the blue will disappear and the paint will stay - then I will iron to fix - and hope the paint is left after washing...and then hopefully will do the quilting...

Maybe I will first try a piece with blue and paint on first before I destroy things.
We shall see ...

You can see two little ladybugs in the top right corner that I was also playing with - drawing direct with the pens.

I should have worked on this size fabric for all my FMQ,  as this size will fit into clear folders and I could save them for future reference...better late than never :)

Lovely Joan! I wonder... Do you know about Retayne? I use it when I do photo transfers from the copier onto the "fabric"paper. After I print my photos onto the fabric, I heat set with a dry iron and allow to sit a while, then rinse in cold water that has "Retayne" in it. It helps to stop the fading/bleeding. I don't know if it would work with this, but thought I'd mention in case you have not heard of it. Looks like GREAT FUN! XO

So pretty!! The washable blue pen I use comes out with a very quick rinse, perhaps it won't hurt the fabric pen colors.
