Blue Lagoon, new picture

Almost finished this picture. The wet felting which I did at the workshop at 20 21 Arts Centre, the other week. I have mounted it on a board, which is covered in a thick pale green curtain fabric, given to me by a Crafty Club member, it's just right for this. 
I have put some small tacks around the edge to hold it in place, then wrapped wire around them, and hammered them in.



The green fabric is laced at the back so it fits tightly to the board.

The tacks have come through to the back and I have bent them over. This will now be covered with a piece of matching curtain fabric, and wire added for hanging, to give a neat finish.





I wont have time for another project before the exhibition. I need to be thinking about what I need to  take with me. I'll make a list. 

Hot again today, they say we are going to have storms. My watering job has finished. Another dog walker for Bailey poodle has volunteered to help. Rose will do it when any of us can't. Joyce, Bailey's owner, is 92 on Thursday, her family are coming to take her out to lunch. I'm going to get this picture finished now. Cheerio. ilona

  8. I love the colours you chose. Is it brighter in "real life?" I know photos don't always do justice to items.
