My friend Hellenne is also a silk painter. The other day I asked her if she had any "mistakes" that she might give to me. This yellow scarf has some blue/green spots and it is one of a few which she thought she couldn't use. I used some beautiful orange wool and nuno felted areas to create a textured scarf. Several of Hellenne's scarves are on display at the Chastain Art Show and Sale.

Felted Vessel

Here is one of my felted vessels. I am going to create a dozen felted flowers to go into it! It really was easy and fast. My only complaint is that I put some red silk hankies which didn't show up nearly as much as I hoped!

Creating Art Clay in Carmen's Kitchen!

Here we are going to town in Carmen's kitchen! What fun and how much fun!

Art Clay Play Day!

I belong to an "Art Bee" as part of our local quilt guild, East Cobb Quilt Guild. Each month one of us "leads" the group in a new technique. This month it was Carmen's turn and we played with art clay. I haven't had time to paint them put what great embellishments!

Marble resist felted scarf

Here I am working on shape and texture with resists in feltmaking.

So I really need a new camara!!!! The colors are completely wrong. The flower is really golden with red and purple highlights.

Blue Nuno Felted scarf - finished

Blue Nuno felted scarf in process

Hand dyed silk in preparation for Nuno Felting

I dyed some silk last night so that I can experiment some more with nuno felting. Actually, the red on the right is scrim, then a silk scarf (I got it from Dharma), then the next three are a heavy silk organza. I used the blue one second from the left for my first experiment. I have done nuno felting before, but I saw some gorgeous stuff at SAFF and feel inspired.

Okay, maybe not the "prettiest" necklace ever, but kind of cool, maybe??? Actually, it is too close to being a deviation from a Lori Flood necklace, so I am going to keep working! I was also thinking about adding some beaded dangles to it. I would take any suggestions! Sharon

And two more! Actually there are about three more which I didn't take pictures! I am finally starting to slow down. I have made two or three scarves everyday this week. Now I just have to find a place to sell them.

Here is another flower that I felted. Isn't it pretty!

Another scarf!
