Did not have enought time to work on anymore discharging this morning so decided to download pictures of what I have so far and play around with it.
This is the first attempt at doing dishwasher liquid discharge. Very loose and free with brigter double discharged flowers fussy cut and pinned on top of single discharged flowers.

This is yesterday's discharged pieces with part of one (bottom row) fussy cut and fused onto the
coneflower one. I tried to be more controlled in painting on the detergent in these and did up to four layers.

Here is just the scrap piece of what was left after cutting apart yesterdays daisy piece. I think it almost stands on it's own.

Variation (cropped in photoshop) of total this layout better?

What about this layout? (also cropped in photoshop)

I just found your blog and it seems I'm the only one who's never seen this technique before! It's fascinating....and your flowers are beautiful! I'm looking forward to more!!

This is one of the prettiest discharged pieces I've seen. I like the more square layout better I think; it has the flowers less in a row.

I like the cropped versions better than the whole. Caryl Fallert always suggested viewing portions of the design for an interesting part.

Fascinating. What makes the colour fade? Is there bleach in it? Have you tried it on other dark colours?
