Hi ! The fabric I used goes from darker to lighter water. I fussy cut it to get the colour change that I wanted. To make the pattern I made an 8X10 black and white print of the photos on regular printer paper. I outlined the mountain, the shaded bits, the rocks, logs, seaweed, etc. with a dark pencil I copied the darker lines onto another piece of paper by holding them both up against the window - a light box would have been easier. I enlarged the drawing by about 180% copied it onto freezer paper and used the freezer paper as my pattern. In this class Wendy Butler Burns talks about making and using a freezer paper pattern.
