My first approach in developing the Kueh Lapis into a fabric print design was to create something happy and pretty and feminine - so I experimented with paintings that had a watercolor effect. (The facial doodles are signs of my wandering mind).
I tried various compositions and scales and got some pretty results but when I put the test prints on my body and looked in the mirror - it did not make me go wow. So I ventured on with other drawing techniques. More on that coming up soon!
