I came across this painting by the French artist Odilon Redon (1840-1916) and something about it made me wonder how it might transfer into felt.
So I lay out a background in blended colours and lightly needlefelted it to hold together. I cut out the vase from a piece of black prefelt and needled that in place. I then "painted" in the flowers and leaves by needling in wisps of coloured wool. I had to blend together colours to get them right. Then I covered the whole thing in gauze and gently wetfelted it between sheets of bubble wrap.
Now it needs some stitching highlights.
