Over the summer I went on holiday to Portugal. I had a fab time catching some rays and also saw some interesting sights that really inspired me. There were lots of worn down buildings in the town, the decaying effect was amazing and got me thinking about fabric manipulation that I could use in designs to give a peeling effect. There were also lots of closed down shops that had paper in the windows to cover up the secrets lurking behind. Some of the paper was water stained and I thought it would make an intersting print on fabric.
