Wonky Lines - The Printed Fabric Bee

 Gerrie Congdon was this month's Queen at The Printed Fabric Bee.  
She requested fabric with wonky, organic lines and she said that she liked orange, red and chartreuse.  Now that is a color way I can get in to!  

I started off by creating a half yard piece of ice dyed fabric using Gerrie's three colors.  
The Chartreuse is hiding on the right hand side.
Next I designed a stencil using my Silhouette electronic cutter and a sheet of transpanency film from a photograph of tree bark.  Believe it or not, creating the stencil was the most time consuming part of this project!
The stencil is hard to see in this photo but it is sitting on top of the fabric.
Little tiny lines and irregular shapes cut perfectly.
I taped the stencil to the bottom of a blank screen. . .
 . . . and pulled prints over the entire piece with red textile paint (Jacquard).

 Here's a close up of the resulting pattern.
 Gerrie wanted an 8"x18" piece.
Here is a close up of the 6" giveaway piece.
