Textured Surface + Layering Fabric + Fabric Paint!

I thought I'd try layering fabric over bamboo fencing before painting! It was a quick and easy way to get texture going while experimenting with a new light weight cotton I recently purchased. 
I used Seta Color transparent fabric paint.

The heavier cotton is below and the lightweight cotton on top!

The paint dried very light. I think the bamboo fencing may have
absorbed more than I anticipated! 
 
Here is a detail of the bottom layer

This is the top layer. It's 36" X 58" and with the lightness
it makes a delicate panel!

I'll go bolder next time now that I understand the mat better
... on to learning new things!

  3. The last picture looks like it could be a landscape. Looks like a fun process to try.
