When art goes bad
This little bit was coming along nicely, some wool fibers needle felted on scrim on a piece of velvet. I was trying out an article in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine by Beryl Taylor (issue 16). Her piece in the magazine looked pretty and I was curious about her use of painted wonder under. I rather liked this piece before I applied the painted wonder under. I should have stopped there and did my usual doodle stitching on it but no! I had to iron on the painted WU and the paper backing wouldn't come off. It wanted to pull all the fusible up along with most of the needle felted roving. I came very close to wadding this up and throwing it into the fire!!!! Ack! I hate it! It looks like it has mange and then someone spilled yogurt on it. But one never knows, does one. It might grow on me if I throw it in a corner for awhile. Like a few years! Maybe I can cut it up and make.....ick.....fire starter out of it?
Full moon tonight. Listening to Coldplay today.
