One last batik ( of sorts)

I found this in my archives as a draft. I am going through all my posts and adding labels - after 3 1/2 years!! Thought I would publish it ah, a bit late

These two shirts were in the rag bag. They were beige and mint green (what was I thinking) linen. Nice shirt but pukey colors. I was going to get some shirts from Goodwill but found these while purging my studio during the re-design of my space.
I was going to do a two color dye but ended up liking these colors so I stopped here. The first one was beige and was dyed dark navy.





This next one was mint green. I was going for a nice deep green but it ended up this color. I may over dye it in the future but mean while, I kind of like this eye popping color.



Also this week I bought a new book  just out called Digital Alchemy. I took this picture because I couldn't believe my batiked quilt was the exact same colors as the book cover. Check this out!
