Some red roving had been staring at me for days, just asking to be needle felted into a piece.
I learned the technique of making the metal pieces from pop cans in a Hilary Rice workshop.
Colour Personified is a needlefelted piece based on a watercolour (see post here) I did a while ago.
The curly bits are hand spun wool yarns I used to add more texture.
The other 2 pieces were:
Forest Fawn, an applique and part of the OOTB green colour challenge is here.
A few weeks ago I posted a watercolour of a red fox and said that I might do it in felt.
Well I did and here’s the result.
Using the watercolour as a guide certainly helped the process.
Finished 2 small pieces this week for Fibre Fling 5. One is done in cool colours, the other in warm.
Both are needle felted.
I am enjoying playing with colour and texture.
Here is my latest felted piece. It will be mounted on a painted canvas. I haven’t yet decided which colour or colours I’m going to paint it. I have fooled around in Photoshop and have come up with several possible versions.
Which one do you like best?
The house isn’t that old. It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one. I felted them a reminder of their former house.
