My husband is a keen and talented photographer. He partakes in Blip photo taking a photograph every day and takes beautiful landscapes often getting up before dawn to catch the light. Occasionally he uses software on his iPad to make composite photographs. I love the vibrancy, surrealism and the unexpectedness of these pictures and some just cry out to me to be made into felt.
Here is an example.
I have been experimenting with turning these kind of photos into felt pictures for a while and like to first make a pastel sketch to work from , as it helps me think about the order of the composition.
I make prefelt and use fabrics in order to get the strong colours and straight lines required .
I always plan to add lots of machine stitching to add texture and details after felting. Here I am threads at the ready , photo to hand about to start stitching on my sewing machine.
