Fiber Arts / Needle Felting- My new fascination
« Last post by Vonna on January 02, 2020, 07:24 AM »
I recently discovered the art of needle felting and have fallen head over heels for it. Back in March, a writer friend had posted some pics on twitter of her friend's needle felt creations. I was gobsmacked by how beautiful they were, but it looked like an art form that would take years to learn. About two months ago, I found a tutorial online for needle felting mice. I tried it and was hooked. So far I've made two mice from the tutorial, and from my own designs I've made another mouse, a small owl, a Cornish pixie (from Harry Potter stories), a 2D portrait of my old border collie, and a 3D portrait of a friend's labradoodle. (I don't know why the dog pic is sideways!)

Everything Else / Re: Craft ideas for kids?
« Last post by Verla Kay on October 06, 2019, 10:07 AM »
A project we (my great grandkids and I) found fun was to buy packages of clear plastic ornaments at our local Dollar Tree store and then drizzle (thinned with water) colored acrylic paints inside, swirl the paint around a little and then let them dry. Glitter, feathers, wiggly eyes, etc. can be glued on to further decorate them. They are so original and could be a fun project for your girls. Also, they might paint funny faces on rocks to use for paperweights. (Or if they are small and flat enough, glue magnets to the backs of them to use on refrigerators.)

Have fun!

Verla, that is amazing! I know this is a few months old, but just wanted to say that she is so lucky to have a Grandma to make such special cakes. What wonderful memory making.
