Stenciling on Fabric

I drew and cut out simple leaf shapes to stencil onto fabric for a healing themed quilt. I wanted simple shapes because I'm going to stitch around the leaves to add dimension. First, I ironed the freezer paper shiny side down onto the already dyed fabric. Next, I used a sponge which was on the dry side so the paint would be softly applied in light layers. Peel away and see the pretty results! Next, I'll add more elements for complexity . . .
