Second Quarter Challenge Finally Done.
That’s right I have it done and with days to spare. 12 whole days at that! Here are the details of the challenge if you missed them. Challenge
I have know what I was going to do for ages I just hadn’t done it. I like Stephenson’s mirror pieces but I also liked the flower pieces so I decided to combine them.
I used a thin piece of black prefelt I had and doubled it up for the back ground. I then used my own handspun for the stems. I added silk throwers waste for the flowers and then more hand spun for the spirals. I wasn’t sure how everything would stick. There was not a lot of fuzzy about any of it. It worked out fine though.
I forgot to take a picture of it before felting but here it is finished. I like it a lot more than I thought I was going to.
I found this frame on my front porch ( have no idea why it was there) and laid it over the picture and I like it even more.
If you haven’t done a piece, go ahead and give it a try, you still have time.

What a good idea to combine the two! I love the colours and it looks great in the frame.
Thanks Lyn, the frame does make a big difference.
Very cool! The frame really finishes it nicely.
Thanks Marilyn, It always amazes me how much difference a frame makes.
Good job. Wish someone would put that frame on my front porch. I am too far behind to catch up. Too many projects on my table. Enjoy seeing everyone’s interpretation.
Thank you Judy, I feel a little like I have to many things on the go at the moment too.
That was a clever idea combining them both! I like the frame too. Oh and the fancy toe-nail polish 😉
Thank you Zed. It was fun to do. I always paint my toe nails wild colours. No point with my fingernails, it never lasts.
Looks great Ann – the frame really helps to crop the piece nicely. Great combination of ideas 🙂
Thanks Ruth, I should be able to wrap this one around a board and them put it in the frame.
Great colors, great idea, and the frame is perfect!
Thanks, the frame really does set it off, doesn’t it.
Lovely colour combo and frame. Great effect all round. Can’t see any funky nails though#######1 🙂
Thanks Koffi, you have to look right at the bottom of the unframed picture and you will see my toes.
Wow a very nice felted art piece. Very creative. Great job. Hugs Judy
Thanks Judy, I have been feeling a bit artistic lately.
