Today I had a day off to catch up on some creative stuff. My little exhibition is drawing closer and since I am supposed to show photos, wet & needle feltings and mixed media I better get going…. I have a few ideas but nothing really substantial yet. My photos will probably mostly be close ups of flowers and insects. About 12-14 of them I think, measuring 21 X 29,5 cm. My wet & needle feltings ? Well, that is the not so substantial part. And the mixed media? you ask. The answer to that one is that they are non existent so far……HELP!
This is a few ideas that I am currently working with.
Come to think of it, this could be a mixed media piece.
I did add fabric, a photo and I even painted on it....
And this is was I started on today.
What do you think it is? I’ll give you a clue. One of my favorite flowers…..
While I was waiting for the wool to dry, which is about as fun as watching wet paint dry ....I made this guy in wire netting.
I got the inspiration in a shop in Stockholm but I can’t really say that mine got quite that lizard look that I was going for. The body is a bit too long and the tail a bit too short I think. The one in the shop was made of wire netting with a lot smaller “holes” in it so maybe that’s what made mine strange looking. I will just have to keep on trying I guess.
Now the wool is dry so,
