Another J.Crew-inspired embellished tee

Today I made another tee based on one of J.Crew's fun tissue knits this winter.  See the original:

Obviously the colors are different, but I took this $2 top from Old Navy, mixed some paint colors and fabric medium together, painted leaves and flowers, and added silk ruffles.

It was really fun to paint the leaves and flowers on!  Not something I usually do.
