Playing in my Fabric Journal

When I started this journal I didn't really have a theme in mind.  A tree theme has quickly developed.  I think it works really well with the animal print fabrics.  This spread has a lot of layers to it already.  I cut a tree stencil and used white spray paint.  That did not give me a good coverage so I added a layer of white chalk pastel and then fixative.  I then added layers of blue with my Caran D'ache Neocolors.  I still need to add some more blue.  I had thought I would add some green at the base of the trees but now I am thinking of leaving it white for a winter scene.

I do a lot of work with trees...none with animal prints. Now that I've seen your 'playing around', I'll have to find a piece of animal print and play a bit myself. RE: getting coverage: you might try either gesso or white fabric paint...but watch the effect it has on the hand of the fabric, and needling will become an issue, especially with gesso. :-)
