What materials did you use? I always use recycled material when I can....I walnut stain old cotton sheets for the backgrounds...100% cotton are the best...

What advice would you give someone starting this project? the main thing is be sure the black walnut stained background is evenly sure to dissolve the walnut stain crystals fully before dying the cotton....I tried tea dying but you don't get the same effect.....if you don't fully dissolve the crystals..the fabric will dye blotchy....fortunately, you can re wash the fabric and start over.....
