Today I finished my felting-exchange piece
for this month.
It is for Caroline, one of the new friends I made
on this wonderful workshop
with Sara Lechner
(almost a year ago now)
Her theme for the exchange is :
I tried some technique a friend explaned to me
to get some ripples on the surface.
As a matter of fact, I did two pieces
because I wasn't satisfied with the first one :
and the colours were a bit messy.
So I made a fresh start yesterday.
... work in progress ...
The ripples were not exactly as I wanted them
but this technique is still new to me
practice makes perfect
Then today came the rest of the fun :
Using various variegated colours Cotton Perlé
and the new Rayon thread from Emma's
I called it "sweet dreams"
I put it in the mail this afternoon and
because I had to mail Caroline about something
I told her not to look here if she didn't want to spoil the surprise.
It is so pretty Els! Such a beautiful garden of colours and stitches! And some fun surface play...maybe I'll try this tomorrow for my 30 minute felt! xoFionaBeantwoordenVerwijderen
