leaf piece in purple

I’m in a lull. Perhaps working up to some more significant creative activity. Perhaps because there has been a lot of stress. Thank goodness for my friends.

This interim piece is going to need a bit more elbow grease, a backing piece and the edges neatening. I made it to to go with the bowl I made the other week to top a chest of drawers. I think I’ve played with skeleton leaves enough with slightly mixed results. But I love the effect of felting with hand-dyed silkworm silk and Wenslydale locks. The dark Jacobs top is lovely to work colour into. The colours help.

    how did you make the leaves?

      I bought the gold ones from George Weil Uk and the coloured ones my daughter had from some old craft project. They are skeleton leaves which will, with care felt in.

    Those colours and texture are gorgeous πŸ™‚ I can never do rich and vibrant without it looking gaudy and too much.

      That’s what I like about our work. It looks kind of refined.

    • lizseville

      Not ‘our’. I meant ‘your work’.

    Refined? πŸ™‚
    I’ve never had it called that before, thanks πŸ™‚
    I do like bright and vibrant though.

      Love my piece of felt from you just as much as I thought. Off to the framer tomorrow. And thanks for the free silk. I’ll definitely have fun with it.

        Oh, good! πŸ™‚
        I’m glad you like it and the silk, I discovered that in the loft not so long ago πŸ™‚
