More Felt Flowers (canvas and Webster's new netting)
I took the opportunity at HIlltop Memories Creep Over Crop that I attended this past weekend to catch up on some things with which I had been wanting to play some more. One of these was wool felt. My intention was to improve my felting technique as I had bought a couple of the tools that help but inadvertently had purchased the wrong ized needles. So, I tried some other things. Using my Cuttlebug, my Tim HOltz grungy vintage flowers die and a couple of other flower dies I had, I cut the felt and then wet some of it to shape, left other pieces dry and dyed the white ones a shade of blue lighter than the felt color and stamped on some canvas ones I had cut out as well. I topped some with the wonderful new new netting by Webster's Pages (hint: I placed the netting between two sheets of thin paper when I ran then through the cutter with the dies). A couple of these have been on my blog but I added some to them.
Thanks so much for looking!
(I'll put up my casket soon that I made for the crop. It is on my laptop whose battery is about to die...left my cord at the crop and it is on its way home thanks to Linda, the owner of Hilltop Memories).
