Needle Felted Wool Paintings

 My local group got together yesterday to do some needle felted wool paintings. Everyone started with an inspirational photo or picture. We used flannel fabric as a background. These are all 5" x 7" pieces. This gorgeous sunset was done by Carole.
 This is Jan's sunflower. She changed it up a bit from her inspiration as the original background was blue.
 Here's Louise's landscape. She was using all kinds of fibers and silk ribbons. She thought  she might do some free motion stitching as well.
 Here's my photo that I used for inspiration.
 This is the partially finished wool painting.
And here it is when it was almost done. These were lots of fun to do and we all had a good time. Next month we're going to try silk painting.

Wonderful pieces and shading. Do you use cotton flannel or are you talking about wool flannel for a background?

Wow! They are gorgeous Ruth! I love the textures on Louise's. I bet the silk painting will be fun, I can't wait to see that :)
