It's January so I have more time to play with some different creative ideas. Recently I bought a roll of drawing paper that is about the width of my larger scarves as I thought it would be fun to play with some scarf scale designs on paper. So one sunny morning last week I unrolled the paper on my work table which is in front of a large window and voila! There was a beautiful palm leaf design showing on the paper. I have an indoor palm between the window and my work table and it was casting an elegant shadow on the paper. Since my work table is a darker colour I didn't see this lovely pattern until I put the paper down!
So, I traced a few palm leaf shadows and then transferred them to a scarf that was already dyed and needed over painting - here are some pictures - I love it when playing turns out so well!
