Mixed Media

This is a sketchbook page I did for a class where we were to do figures. Like I said, I don't really draw, so I used a magazine photo and surrounded it with dried leaves from my yard.   The background is sprayed and then wet to spread the color around.  The leaves are sure fragile and tend to crumble. I think I should have coated them with medium first.

This is the start of a felted landscape using the some of the gift I won last week. The hills are prefelts . The sky is the background felt with some of the gift roving to create clouds. It had the nicest violet through it just like the shadows can be on clouds. The greens are ones I dyed with food coloring. Now the stitch it like crazy.

Your landscape is looking good already - should be great when you've finished stitching.

I'm looking forward to seeing the stitched landscape. Love the clouds!
