I decided the easiest way to communicate what I am trying to do was to create this little page in CAP.
On Monday we went to our local Craft Community and learned how to make a felted picture. We had to take a picture with us as inspiration. Last night we made the background with the wet felting technique, and we have to finish it at home, using needle felting, once the background is dry. So it will be a case of watch this space - work in progress!
