The Paperwhites bloomed.
When they opened, the Paperwhites filled the room with their heady perfume. They gave us a lovely fragrance to remind us of the promise of the upcoming Spring.
Here is a sample of one of my "Dreamfish." The image seems appropriate for the Piscean month of March.
The "Dreamfish" was created when our son Alex was very young and had nightmares. He loved to fish. So I made the first "Dreamfish" to chase away the "bad dreams" and devour them. It worked!
Feltmaking offers endless possibilities for exploring texture and color. I love the unexpected ways in which the fibers combine to produce complex landscapes of imagination.
The sensuous softness and scrumptious colors are delightful.
If you look, there is no limit to imagination.
Are you interested in creating your own "Dreamfish?" I offer workshops. Go to my class descriptions page to find out more.
One of my latest classes is called Bijoux Fleuri. The class includes instructions for making three different fleurs.
I've combined dimensional felt with other fibers, beads and embellishment to create miniature explosions of color that can be worn as a brooch, or incorporated with other pieces to make a personal creative statement. This class is nice introduction to using the Baby Lock Embellisher.
As always, your comments are welcome. Of course, if you have any questions about my work or workshops let me know. You can contact me via email, on Facebook or send me a "tweet" at Twitter.
