Tutorial: Painting a background for ribbon embroidery violet flowers
I was so inspired by the violets which are flowering in my rose bed….it’s about the only flowering apart from some Italian Lavender. But I simply adore violets, and have painted them in different art forms, see my links to my Ingridcreates.com blog and here.
Paint the background on muslin with acrylic paints, and embroider the violets on top. Here are the videos on my youtube channel explaining a detailed tutorial on how to handpaint these. In this post I’ve included a pictorial step by step, of how to hand paint on fabric for your ribbon embroidery.
Here is thePDF file for the drawing used for this painting.
