And yet another new art form for me. The flower is my first needle felt project. I don't know what I'll do with it, but I just wanted to see if I could master this craft, so I just drew out a simple pattern and started. The leaf is for a felt leaf swap which will end up being a book. Four more leaves to go, but it's a great project for when you are just sitting and watching TV. More new colors have arrived on my doorstep so hopefully they will liven up my color scheme.

This time after the print was dry and heat set, I added silver paint spirals with a rubber sponge stamp and white paint dots using the end of a wooden skewer. These pieces are so much fun to create, but I really need to get busy and think of something to actually make out of the fabric.

I have just learned how to make sun paintings from the blog owner of Ruminations and Reflections I think she used special paint, but I just used watered down acrylic paints. Mine didn't bleach our as white as hers did, but I still like the mottled effect it produced. This was so easy and so much fun to do. I'm showing 2 pictures but it is really one piece of fabric folded and scanned. Thanks so much to the owner of R&R for all of your help. Now to go create something with this fun piece of fabric.
