I was wondering what to do with the spirals. First thoughts were make something like the button heart, but then I thought no that's too samey. I want to do something else. Then I thought I want to make a picture using all felt. It's so easy to work with having no fraying edges. I can see it with lots of embroidery, and maybe buttons and beads embelishments.
So I got a large piece of paper, drew a few lines, numbered the pieces and cut them out. These are my templates.
Next I gathered all the felt I have and went through it choosing the colours. A simple design, land and sky. I see a big orange sun up there, and some trees dotted on the hills. The spirals will be the trees. The sun might be a spiral but it would have to be a big one. I am looking for a Folk Art effect.
Looks pretty simple at the moment, but as I work on it the ideas will come. I like creating something like this as I am never sure which direction it's going to take me. Itching to get on with it now.
