“needle felted tree ‘elfin gum’… a living habitat that is now home to little pixies, a book nook, miniature fairy wren and snoozing gumnut baby. I love adding to it. Inspired by all the magical trees of my childhood dreams”

Beautiful Needle Felted Lake Superior

Needle Felted Storm Over Lake Superior by Joy Hogg featured on www.livingfelt.com/blog.

Scraps aren’t trash. Think of them as art “yet to be realized.” This beautiful and highly textural work of art by Joy Hogg is a great reminder of this idea and perfect for this week’s celebration of Mother Earth in so many ways!

Storm Over Lake Superior 10″ x 12″

Silk hankie in grey can be the cliffs of Lake Superior shores being splashed by foam, or storm clouds. The water was a piece created for something else and needle felted to the background. The faint red in the foreground was also a scrap from another “failed” felt, needle felted to this picture. The yellow watery foam is silk.

The lesson to me: Don’t throw away failures or cut away pieces. And silk hankies give a lovely 3 dimensional feel plus a bit of textural difference.”

Fun & Colorful Needle Felted Nativity

Trish Veilleux has a fun style to her needle felting. This needle felted nativity scene is very inviting!

There are so many ways to interpret a theme, and we love this sweet nativity by Trish, with its  bright colors, varied skin tones and soft shapes – what a delight!

“Made with Living Felt Fall, Earth Tones & Primary Studio Pack. Accented with twines and seed bead embellishments. Manger is made of popsicle sticks and toothpicks.”

She does have an etsy shop with tons of cute things, including felted Christmas ornaments:  I FELT THAT

Needle Felted Green Man by Leanne Carpenter

needle felted green man by Leanne Carpenter

Leanne needle felted this wonderful Green Man with a variety of fibers…isn’t he fabulous?

This picture was originally a winner in our weekly drawing and Leanne won free felting supplies 🙂
We are re-posting this in celebration of our Felting Mother Earth theme this week — he is perfect.

This felted wool hanging is a wonderful example of what some call painting with wool.
Leanne has felted a lot of shades and highlights that one normally sees in paintings –
and it makes for a very artful felted work!
