Tie Dyeing

Tie Dying

Thinking back to the days of love beads, peace symbols and flower girls. Coloring Summer Hippie Emily from LacySunshine I wanted to capture the dresses worn back then. I came up with tie dye. Just coloring with my Copics, I couldn't get the effect I wanted, so I came up with this idea. First I found some embroidering type thread than I did this. Then I just tapped the color on with the little tassels.

This is what it turned out like.


  1. Linda - Brilliant! I love the background you chose to use with her and the circle of daisies is perfect! As a child of the 60's in San Francisco, this old Flower Child likes it!

  2. Great idea! I love the effect you achieved with this.
