I like to mess and try new crafty things and one of the first craft things hubby bought me was some silk painting thinks. It's a bit time consuming getting set up streching the silk etc but so theraputic watching the paint travel through the silk fibres, and over far too quickly but I do love the finished effect. Here I have slightly cheated and used a predone gutter(outline). Predone always seems flatter than when you do your own and you don't have to wait for it to dry either.
I know tulips are more a spring flower but the lady I've done this for has a birthday later this month and adores tulips so tulips in summer.
