Fabric painting

I finally tried painting on fabric. I bought the Shiva paint stiks over a month ago but had not had a chance to try them. The first attempt is using the rubbing plates which creates a textured background. I think this will take some practice to achieve the desired effect(as with any new technique). Next I tried the stencils, they are great with really nice results right away. When I get a few done I will post some pictures and then on to the the decision of where to use them. I'm thinking of unique potholders, pillows, placemats, quilting blocks, etc. Open for any other suggestions. It is so sunny and warm today I should turn off the computer and soak in some of the warmth.
