Week #6

Two pieces of felt, gold and grey, needle punched together. For some reason I couldn't needle punch swirls with the embellisher so I rubber stamped a few onto tissue paper and pined them in place onto the grey side to use as a guide. After they were punched and the tissue fell apart other shapes were lightly drawn in with a blue-green pen. Some of the ink lines came through on the gold side looking green, interesting. And the the dark gold tissue paper came through in the lower left area looking a little rusty. Couldn't have planned any of this if I tried!
Back side. Very bland, but when needle punched from both sides exciting things happen, in this case I thought that the grey side was going to be the front. The gold side ended up being the winner.

Another rough patch hit this week. My rock, the man in my life, was diagnosed with Melanoma and will have surgery next Friday. The oncologist wanted to know why I thought the spot looked suspicious. What can I say, I just knew.

So sorry to hear you have yet more to cope with but thank goodness you noticed this early. I hope your man's surgery will be completely successful.

I like this piece to but then again as you have heard a million times I love your art. Seems like a bunch of steps went into this one but the finished piece is wonderful Gail.
