Anyway, yesterday I realized that I had some left over gold colored silk thread and I started to embroider over the piece. The flashes of yellow in the original Starry Night were just not coming across with just the wool. I also took some inspiration from another needle-feltress and added beads to the center of every star to give it that extra flash.
This next one is of my cat (based off of this photo). I have two cats but I want to "paint" this one as his tabby coloring offers a bit more of a challenge (my other cat is black and white).
I blend my colors with my hands instead of with hand carders and I think that way I can maintain more of the stripy look. (If anyone wants me to post a tutorial - give me a shout.)
I really like how I got the ears to look (working with a fluffy medium really helps here). Also yes, he often has that little smile.
Delicate Arch in Arches National Park USA (also the arch on the Utah licence plate). I love the color of the red rocks of the Southwest and I wanted to capture it. I was pleased that I was able to get the shadowing right. This was needlefelted on a un-carefully (my fault I get excited) cut piece of felted thrift store sweater. so to frame it I sewed it onto another piece of fabric with turquoise sock yarn and put the whole thing in a hand painted embroidery hoop.
