I wet felted the base with merino and blue faced leicester then added needle felted poppies to make it more 3D.
Hope you like it....
|Turquoise silk laps on clementine merino wool. You can make the silk have a fairly thick coverage or open it up more to get more gaps.|
|The winter light doesn't really do it justice, it has a really gorgeous shine which contrasts well with the felt.|
|Silk laps on a tanzanite merino wool background, I tried adding texture with marbles... my first experiment with this! I don't think the white wool background works, maybe a contrasting colour??|
|Close up, again, the shine hasn't shown up.|
|Experiment with felting organza. It took quite a while to get it to felt but the effect was quite cool. I like the way it concertinas up when the wool shrinks.|
|I love this effect. Add a network of wool to organza and you end up with bubbles of fabric.|

|First attempt at nuno felt. Merino wool on cotton scrim background. When the sun finally shines I will take another photo of this. The colours work better than this shows.|
