I mentioned the other day that I had been working on a new needle-felted scene, and here it is completed along with another tiny piece.
Using only naturally dyed fibers in this piece was a fun challenge for me. You'll see red onion, acorns, cedar, creeping charlie, strawberry leaf, bedstraw, pomegranate skins, all blended in here along with some natural grey wool. The colors are subtle and well, natural. You can bet you'll see more of this from me in the future.
And of course there are sporophytes.
I dried a piece of oak for the base on this piece and I love the scruffy texture of the bark.
The other piece I completed is much smaller. So much so that it makes me giggle to look at it.
It's only 4" tall and about 2" across.
This one has two little white mushrooms, a tiny stone, and yup, sporophytes. I dried a piece of poplar for the base of this one.
I love being amongst the moss and mushrooms.
These two pieces have already found their way to my shop. I'd love it if you'd stop by and have a look or share with your friends.
Thanks so much, everyone. Have a fantastic long weekend.
