The chalk texture prints beautifully on basic cotton - see the 2nd thumbnail above (double click for a clearer view) - & would be great on linen-cotton canvas I think.

Showing how nicely the chalk texture prints - I think this will do really well on linen-cotton canvas, but it would also be fun on crepe de chine - a sort of contradiction of textures!

Thanks for the "beachy keen" Cal - much appreciated... wish I had a little beach house to show it off in too!
Oh wow....beachy keen! The informal, playful and beachy characteristics of the chalk texture and colors is perfect with this piece. Wish I had a sweet little beach house to decorate with this cloth .... or a terrycloth fabric option for a set of towels! A fun and sunny design.
Thanks so much Janet, Angela and Rhonda for your great feedback... I was so pleased that the nautical flags, and the gritty (sandy) texture were picked up in your comments. I love the idea of this being like beach glimpses through tiny windows (some of them with tiny venetians!). It's an interesting process to make a "whole" through tiny pieces - quite different to scoping out a big design. I also learnt that odd numbers are the magic numbers for repeating check-based designs (hope I can remember that)!
I love how you have combined so many elements of a beach scene in an interesting, well-balanced, geometric format, Su! It is like seeing glimpses of the beach through tiny windows. The gritty texture, so like beach sand, adds to the seaside "feel" of the design.
I love the texture, colors and geometry of this!
You always amaze me. This is beachy on several levels, including an allusion to nautical flags.
