What happened to paper mâché?

I have also been enjoying needle felting immensely lately. I have started on a series of people following my tree

And my fox

I have created this little face which has a body and is actually much improved since this photo shoot. But I just wanted to record this now to keep it all in my creative journal.

I will post a picture of the finished one eventually. I am considering how to combine paper mâché and needle felt although I have yet to workout a strong enough method of joining the two together.

I have also immensely enjoyed machine Embroidery

I have several others in this series that are nearly completed.

And the photo transfers. These have been really successful and inspirational I will definitely be taking this further.

So far I have found this module very inspiring even though at first glance I wasn't sure. What a super find!!

  1. I'm very impressed with your needle felting, you've got the spatial awareness to do it really well. Am still a bit unerved by the head, reminds me of 18th century Venetian Mardi-Gras masks. (This is not a bad thing though!).
