Felt picture postcard 6

I used the extra silk to "paint" a mountain.
 I will send some leftovers along with the felt postcard.

                                 I received this card with silk birds and white mull on a cloud, and there was some extra silk fabric for me to use.

Felt picture postcard 5

 Here you can read  How it all started 

I received this beautiful card with the additional material on the right.
(The extra material I have sent along is incorporated in the branch).

You can see this extra material being used in the card below.

 I have been painting and felting red trees lately 

And this is my response, with some extra mull added.

Felt picture postcards 4

Last week we finished the "Felt picture postcards" series, in which we used mixed wool as a background. The last card in the series is also the first of our new series.
The new assignment is again a felt postcard, but it comes with some of the material that is used on it, separately. This material you then have to use on the next card you make.

Vorige week hebben we de serie "Felt picture postcards", waarin we de gemêleerde wol als achtergrond  gebruikten, afgesloten. De laatste kaart in deze serie, is ook meteen de eerste van onze nieuwe serie. De nieuwe opdracht is een viltkaart maken en een van de daarin gebruikte materialen los meesturen. Het is de bedoeling dat dit los toegevoegde materiaal in de volgende kaart wordt gebruikt.

Felt in the UK, Lake district

I'm finishing my felt work inspired by my trip to the Lake district.
This Saturday we have a reunion in the studio of Corrie Balk and everybody is bringing a piece of felt work, inspired by our trip earlier this year.  

I'm not really sure whether to cut the work in half or to leave it in one piece. Any ideas?
