Felting fibers

As part of my goal to use what I have, I pulled out my roving stash last night. This is just two of  several lovely fiber bunches I’ve been holding onto for the last 3 or 4 years. Time to bring them out of the darkness.

I was not sure what direction I was going with the project, so I just started playing around with the stuff. Ended up pulling out this soft black fibers from the first mix and creating lines to play off the lines of the print. I’m far from done with this but I think it came out as good second layer. Adding some color the images is next. Stay tuned!

Fire!

I have been putting off making this for months. The idea of making fire out of this really cool felt that was given to me just scared me. I was scared of messing it up and wasting the material. I realize this makes little sense because the stuff would be going to waste if I didn’t use it. So here is the fire. I created a sketch first then built from there. You will see the whole project complete in a few weeks.
