Spring Flower Composition

First, I drew the Chrysanthemum with a Sharpie, then saturated the fabric with a water spritzer. I then dropped loose, dilute colors one at a time. (I let it dry in between each hue, otherwise, you get mud). After that, I stenciled, printed, added sparkle with white areas, and threw in everything but the kitchen sink! Next, I'll stitch in black thread all around the outside of the flower to emphasize.
