When I was a toddler I had a pair of lime green shorts covered in a cheery fruit print. They met their demise when I dropped an ice cream bar on them. Death by chocolate. I was more devastated over the loss of that beautiful fabric than the ice cream, and ever since I have adored fruit print clothing. In the fragrant sea of berries, melons, and roses that is July, my wardrobe looked like it could use some of that fruity loveliness.
So I started with this coral t-shirt.
I painted it with acrylic paint.
I absent mindedly started painting the reference rose while waiting for the shirt to dry...
And here is the final product!
