First, and while I'm thinking about it, I want to thank Marie for her kind and regular comments!
Having a little more "free time" now that my test is over, this morning I played around with some needle felting designs for my new bag.
I don't think either one of these is going to be the "winner"; however, I'm interested in what comments you and anybody else out in blogland might have regarding these iterations.
Too detailed? The groupings look funny together?? Needs more flowers or less flowers or flowers moved more to the left or right? Design okay but colors wonky?
Whatever anybody might be thinking, I'm interested in hearing it, because, I am no artist.....
"Drawing" something onto a big blank canvas of a felted bag is a bit of a stretch for me, though I think it is good for me to get out of my comfort zone a little bit...
I'm also contemplating sources of inspiration other than flowers. Folksy hearts? Fish?
Note: These might look a little bit fuzzy, because I've only lightly tacked the designs in place just to get an idea of the design. (Don't worry - your eyes are fine!) That way, I may remove the fiber easily if necessary.
