Latest Finished Felt Landscape

I am happy that I was able to finish the landscape that I was doing for the Granby Land Trust art show. This is the third year I have submitted a piece of felt. I got juried in both years. I am hoping this will be the third. Here is the photo I was using for inspiration.


This was the start of the piece just before I did the wet felting.

Below is what it looked like  a few days ago after a lot of needle felting.

The piece finished...

and framed.

There are still things I would change but I am not unhappy with it and having it be done is wonderful.

  3. It's wonderful - aren't there always things that we would change or do differently. That's what the next piece is for!

  12. Diane,
    This piece is beautiful & so peaceful. I'm new to felting & this was very inspiring!! Do you mind to share on what type of medium you felt your photos such as this?

    May you have a blessed day!

  13. Hello Debbie, thank you for the compliment. I am not sure I understand your question. I use wool and various other fibers to create my felt.

  14. What is the base fabric you felt on?

  15. DebbieR, there is no fabric in this piece, just wool and other fibers felted in the traditional wet felting technique. I lay out the colored wool fibers to look like the image and then put on soap and water and agitate the fibers until they tangle together to form the felt.
