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.

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!

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
