2008 Weekly Mixed Media Project
This is my fifteenth Weekly Mixed Media piece this year. Below the back side.
Here are the steps needed to create it:
Take a piece of pea green wool felt fabric (approx 10" square) and lay a triangle of yellow pre-felted fleece on top of it. on top of that, place a piece of loosely woven orange fabric, with some yarn woven through it in places.
Needle felt from top down only over the yellow triangular section.
The back side will look similar to the picture above.
Place another triangular piece of yellow pre-felted fleece on top of the back side of the pea green wool felt fabric. With the new yellow side up, needle felt over the yellow section only.
Flip the whole piece over, and needle felt all over, including over the orange fabric and yarn, from the top side down.
The back side will look similar to the picture above. When you have felted as much as you want to do, stitch yellow-green lines using a sewing machine, vertically between the loose weave of the orange fabric. Cut the piece down to 6 inches square, and you're finished.
You can see my 2008 weekly mixed media work (so far) on my website, and read about my process/progress here on my blog.
