Art Every Day, Saturday, May 22, 2013
Well, after a few weeks hiatus, and opening a new gallery and studio, I'm back with a vengeance! This is the piece I created today. It took me a lot longer than an hour or so, in fact, it took about 4 hours. I just wanted to sit and create so I started with a dark blue green dye painted piece of batting and needle felted the hell out of it.
I added silk hankies in violet and yellow green. Silk throwster waste in yellow green, medium blue and a soft red violet and silk carrier rods in light blue then I outlined it all using some silk and wool yarns. Once it was all needle felted and I had broken every felting needle that I had (felted by hand, I don't have one of those machines) I quilted it. It was kind of yummy after the felting but it became fricken fabulous after the quilting.
It's great to be back baby, it's great to be back!
