printing...an update...

a very quick printing session this morning to give my new colours a try out and to get it out of my system.
I would only have been thinking about them all day if I hadn't...


you know me...you know I would.
some adjustments need making...
the one I am most pleased with, surprisingly as it isn't a colour I normally use, is the lilac. it is really soft but has enough personality to not be over powering.

 the green is okay. I would like it a tad lighter and more of a yellowy green.
as for the yellow, it is a lot brighter than I was aiming for. I must remember than colours always come out brighter on the fabric. much more white needed in the mix in this one.
it is all a big trial and error exercise.
although there is really no error as I can always make use of the fabrics...
and...
my tester sheet is looking pretty in the process.
 UPDATING an update:

just thought i would do a little show and tell of my playing around with these new shades in my repertoire...
dumpling pouches seemed a quick and easy and fun way to try them out...
what do you reckon?

I like the yellow. It says "hello"! What fabric do you print onto?

What Charlotte said!

As for yellow I prefer primrose, or orangey or mustardy yellow!

Bit confused by the green as it look a bit different in the two photos...? Sorry!
