This is what my kitchen table looked like this evening. There were no beads; just felt scraps, tracing paper cut-outs, scissors, and glue. All over the place. This is the stage of my work that reminds me of when I was a little kid. Kids don’t care about the mess they’re making when they’re creating art, which is the way it should be. So, tonight, I tried to make the biggest mess I could:)
This mess was the result of my attempts to create a felt foundation for my new bead-embroidered piece. This part is tricky because I really have to imagine the subject as if it were sitting in front of me.
Here are the shapes I cut out so far:
I didn’t feel much like stitching anything tonight, so instead, I used some Tacky glue to stick some of the felt pieces together. I’ll stitch them down later. Also, if you’re wondering why some of the layers are gray, it’s because I was out of white at the moment. :0
Now, I have to go clean up that mess…
