The Art of Felting
I’ve been playing around with several new mediums lately and felting has been the latest one. It has always intrigued me and I find taking wool roving and shaping it into something is quite relaxing, that is unless your my dad. Then, well… it’s not so relaxing. I taught him and mom how to do it during their Christmas visit and he was not too impressed. He’s decided to stick to woodcarving. But I do have a star and a bird that they both completed that I’ll show you tomorrow. They did a great job.
I decided to take this felted heart and cover it with small scraps of stamped muslin, linen and burlap then accent them with vintage buttons, pearls and charms. I attached two jump rings at the top of the heart then attached two different styles of vintage rosary beads to finish off the necklace. I plan on giving this to a certain someone who I’ve chatted with every single day since rooming with her in Mykonos, Greece, during the Cocoa Daisy Destinations: Mykonos Retreat back in September 18 – 27 of 2010.
And I’m happy to say, it’s almost time for Maya Road CHA-W sneak peeks to start and I cannot wait to share. Wait until you see what the design team has created with all the new products. You are going to swoon like crazy. Since Caroline posted this photo already I snagged it from her post to share with you.
This new trim has me giddy!!! It looks just like vintage rhinestone jewelry pieces you would find in a thrift shop or antique store. You bet I did the happy dance when I saw these in person.
Ok, back to work for me… it’s crazy here right now.
