Discharge and Design Wall

I've been playing around with discharging fabric with bleach and deColourant.  Above are three pieces I pleated with my smocking pleater, then I dipped the top two in bleach and used deColourant on the third.  I really like that the third piece discharged to white.  






These next two are from a failed attempt at "snow-discharging."  I thought they looked pretty blah, so I mixed up some flour and water, spread it over, let it dry, then sprayed them with bleach.  Much better.


And this is my design wall.  That's Poseidon with his trident.  I ran out of MistyFuse and my LQS doesn't carry it anymore, so I had to stop for now.  Hopefully, I can work on this some more next weekend.  I'm having a little trouble deciding on the fabric to use for his seahorses anyway.

To check out other design walls, go to Judy's blog.

hummmmm maybe pinks or purples... for the seahorses.... you already have blue, yellow, orange, cream and black.... red might be too strong, or a dull brick red or maybe a green... Waiting to see MORE!

Isn't it fun to see what happens or doesn't happen!! Looking forward to seeing your 'design' wall piece progress!
