Ladybugs, Dandelions & "Wild" Flowers, OH MY!
These are the paper templets with my sketches on them
The silk has been pinned on top of the paper templets so I can trace the drawings
I am using a Conté pencil to trace the drawings because the lines wash out better than graphite pencil does
Tracing the pattern below on the the silk
Outlined the drawing with black thickened dye and started in on the ladybug. You can see the patterns from other scarves I have painted on the cloth below the scarf
