March

 I have decided that this is the completed version for March for now.  That isn't to say that its finish but for now it is, much like a painting.  Sometime, you need to leave something for awhile and then decide if its finished, usually if you feel that way, there is something there that is nagging but its unclear what.  That is the way for this one.

This is the picture I started out with and there is no way I captured the luminosity of this scene but I tried.- Image removed  see this bloggers post on copyright



The process began with felting very broadly onto a piece of craft felt, then some embroidery and free machine stitching, finishing with the beading, followed by more embroidery. 

I think stretching it (the process has warped the base fabric) and providing a backing sheeting might make it clearer, we will see.

As a teaser, here is the beginning of April which is actually much further on and probably as close to being finished as this March is.

I think it looks very done! :) I'm envious of all the needle-felters out there, it's getting very popular and it provides a fabulous look. This piece is stunning!

It's a great piece! And wonderful how you incorporated so many different techniques into your piece! Wonderful!

I disagree with you...I think you've captured the luminosity very very well. That strip of yellow and the way it fades into the surrounding colors really does the trick :-)

I like this a LOT!!! It's very abstract looking, even though it's based on a real scene. I'm so glad you gave us a click-to-enlarge picture so I can see the details. You put a lot of work into it! And the results are lovely (and luminous) indeed!

You have captured the picture beautifully. I love the textures.
