It is intimidating and fun to draw on something as big as a bed sheet. Plus starting on a busy patterned surface is not the norm. I used color pastels to enhance the flowers that worked and gesso to wash out the colors that were not working. I found this old sheet on eBay. I think I had this exact pattern when I was a teenager. this was a lot of fun - I hope you can tell. 

Happy dog day- 🐾🐾
