IS IT A BOOK.........
or is it a TRIBBLE?!! Does anyone remember tribbles? from Star Trek? the little hairy creatures?, well this reminds me of them somehow!! All sort of hairy and out of control!
It is in fact a book and it is my entry for PLAY DATE CAFE this week where the colours are pink, orange and lime green..........sooooo NOT my colours but then that is what a colour challenge is all about.....stretching your boundaries.........well for me it is!! In fact these are so not my colours that I was VERY surprised to find I had buttons in orange and lime green, even more so that I had so many of them!
The cover for this book was made using needle felting tools, new toys I bought recently and have been playing around with. I discovered while playing around to see what would felt and what wouldn't that this wool stuff that has fluffy bits interspersed with tags of a more solid material (you can tell I don't know what it's called can't you!) felts in an interesting way..........the fluffy bits attach to the felt leaving the tag bits standing out giving this sort of shaggy finish that I quite like.
Have to apologise here............I got one of the colours wrong!! What I took to be orange should have been red..........sorry!!!
