Step 1: Just get some Gesso on the fabric. I drizzled it straight out of the bottle. Move it around with your largest paint brush. I found that a wet brush really makes it move easier but a dry brush give more texture.
Step 2: since I used a dark brown fabric I decided to add some light brown to bring down the white a little. At this point I still really had no idea what it was going to end up looking like.
Step 3: start adding your designs. I added some dark brown before I painted the first flower and I really was just trying to add depth to the background.
Step 4: Keep adding flowers around the outside of the Fabric. Thanks to my daughters for taking these pictures for me.
Step 5: Choose another color and add more flowers to fill in the design
Here is how it looks up to this step. You can see the dark brown that I added to the background. I did not paint the them completely but left the background sowing through. I used a heat gun to dry each of the layers before adding another layer so that the colors will stay true.

After the centers are painted add a few leaves, they do not have to be perfect you want the design to look free. I then Added more gesso to the center of the design ans made sure that it covered the center almost completely.
Then I painted some flowers in a third color and added more details to these flowers with shading. I then painted spirals and Curly-Q's to add movement.
Once I had all my design painted and It had dried for a couple of hours, I brought out my favorite black Scribbles 3D Paint and started to doodle on the surface of the fabric.
I used the Scribbles 3D Paint to add details and outline the flowers
I went around each flower and Curly-Q adding details with the Scribble 3D Paint .
