This design was created using a 'stone' pattern kitchen sink mat as the resist and screened with two colors of thickened dye.
I've talked about this many times....but in case you are a new reader.....I always stabilize my wool felt prior to stitching. Pellon Lightweight Sew-In Interfacing is my first choice. Here I've marked two sets of guidelines that will help with the design placement for this piece that will be mounted on a 5" x 7" canvas covered wood frame.
Fast forward a bit.....I've attached a beautiful fused glass cabochon with beads, (a gift from my generous friend Nanette who is a fabulous fiber artist). Due to the small size of this piece, only simple hand embroidery was added to provide texture.
An overview: the screened portion is appx. 15" sq. I've retained the surrounding wool to make it easier to secure in a QSnap frame for the handwork.
Further embellishing is going to be done on the cabochon, so until that's complete, I'll hold off adding any other motifs.
