How DID you do that? I hope "stacked dye" is covered in the class. I have't listened to all the classes yet. This is beautiful...just beautiful.

Stacked dying is covered. Stecilling is not covered but it is simple if you thicken the dye with sodium alginate which is derived from seaweed and is available online.

That is soo cool! I love the leaf design element it gives the pattern an organic feel like what you imagine walking through a rainforest might look like!
