Ginger jars are steeped in centuries of Chinese culture and got their name because they often contained ginger when they were exported to the West. Textile design. All rights reserved Cynthia Maniglia

I downloaded a new app to play with my images: Affinity Designer (it combines capabilities of Photoshop and Illustrator in one app). I’m having fun playing with my watercolors using digital software, as I try to work them into textile designs. I’m just starting and have loads to learn.
