Colouring Tutorial

 Sorry about the shadow.
Now Susie asked me if i would do a tutorial on colouring in on fabric,so i had missed a leaf on my Paris Blooms table runner so i thought i would show you how i do this by finishing my leaf.

 Now i  started off with fabric pencils and then gently colouring in the leaf and then i kept colouring in till i had it as dark as i wanted it
 Then i get my textile medium and mix half and half of water and medium and blend them together
 then take of excess moisture of your brush before you paint so that it doesnt bleed everywhere,and then i gently painted over the  coloured in leaf
 Then when dry iron it to set the colour in on the fabric
Then  i found the matching thread and stitched around the leaf.
 This is such a beautiful pattern called Paris Blooms by Petals & Patches and can be bought here.
And here it is ready to be put together,hope this helps those ladies that were wondering how to colour on fabric.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend
