Gotta love the felting!

I am back on the felting trail. There is still a lot of experimentation for me with these techniques. So for this piece, I started with wet felting the background, stitching over the top and then adding embellishments with needle felting. I have to admit that I bought an embellishing machine last year and did not touch it much. Now I am so glad that I did. It really helps with making sure that everything is down and in place securely ( and quickly ). So, mark that off as one of the things that I purchased that was not a total and complete waist.

I have mounted it onto a 5" by 7" gallery wrapped canvas that has been covered in green wool felt.

This piece will be listed on our etsy site.
