Fabric painting

I like doing fabric painting, I painted some pillow cases to match the bed sheets. The idea for the colours were from my daughter; she was using orange and pink to do some painting and she was happy when I borrowed her idea. I had lots of fun and the children enjoyed watching, while my hubby was taking care of them.

Thinking back theses paintings remind me of the marigold we planted as an annual theme the Summer I painted these pillow cases.
