I've been working on just a few new brooches lately and wanted to give you a peek. These are all small needlefelted wool scenes fitted into bases that I make by hand.
I was really liking how the cracks in this stump lined up with the leafless trees in this nighttime scene. This one has a teardrop shaped base made from an oak limb I brought in from the woods. I think with all this heat we've been having I was subconsciously seeking those leafless winter nights in the woods.
A golden field against a clear blue sky.
I've shared this piece previously in a Wordless Wednesday post. This one has been fitted into a piece of antler that I cut and drilled and it is, to date, the smallest landscape scene I've made. I think it may also be one of my favorites.
Making these little scenes allows me to daydream about peaceful places I've been and places I'd like to see. I sometimes think of them of as little postcards saying "wish you were here".
These will be in my shop on Monday at noon CST.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
