Well now the show is over I have some time to work on a few other projects and to start developing new ideas. I had a very enjoyable and relaxed felting session this afternoon with my embellisher... I am definitely beginning to feel more confident with colour and am feeling more able to experiment with combining colours within pieces. This week I have had a major clearout and 'streamline' (!) of my craft stash, and during the process I came across lots of wee bits and pieces of work that let me see how things have developed since I first set off down this path just over two years ago. It's all been trial and error really - I'm still not very good at detailed planning, I tend much more to go with my 'instinct' (whatever that is!) - but it's interesting to see a thread of continuity between pieces that I have made along the way. Anyway, here is what I've been working on today:
The larger pieces are for attempts at a new jewellery idea. More about that soon!
Also this week I've been able to finish another project I wrote about recently - here's the back of it:
can you tell what it is yet? :P
Right now the finished piece is stretching its legs on the wall in our living room - more photos to follow!
