Julie B. Booth Shell Design

This design is based on sketches I made of a broken moon snail shell. I took one of my sketches, simplified it for a more graphic look and then rotated it a quarter turn. I decided to add a small snail shell design to the center of the block for interest. I've used this block a number of times to print fabric. I like to print the block then rotate it a quarter turn to create a larger square design. See the photo below of a piece of my printed fabric. For this piece, I first painted color washes with Pebeo Setacolor Transparent fabric paint, I then printed with Pebeo Setacolor Opaque fabric paint using an embossed moldable foam block before overprinting with my shell block design.
