Couldn't resist

. . . to try this technique after watching the video in this tutorial. For now I only tried the second part with freezer paper. Some of you might recognize this design from my studio journal. I used the freezer paper templates from my quilt and the label to make a mirror image in my studio journal. Then I drew some tulips with a white crayon. I used an umber watercolour paint and removed the freezer paper while the paint was still wet. This is a detail of the tulips. It was fun to watch the crayon resist the watercolour paint. I like the effect of this technique.

Next time I'll write about the quilt I made with this design.
