Art Nouveau = Dragonfly's!

This is Carol here and I wanted to share my approach and techniques for creating Jackie's Art Nouveau fabric! For me the theme conjured up images of dragonfly's, poppies and cool loopy swirls! I also equated the era with jewel tone and gilded  colors. It was fun to research and think about as I put my thoughts onto fabric.

I ended up focusing on dragonfly's... ok - they are one of my favorite subjects! I began with ice dyed fabric and moved onto the the flour resist technique. I also included stamping, stenciling and over dyeing. For a detailed tutorial please stop by my blog at Carol R. Eaton Designs.

For a change to win your own Art Nouveau custom fabric collection please stop by Jackie's blog and leave a comment. Hurry on over - Jackie will announce a winner on May 17th!
