Art journal - Sunburned

Felted wool scarf - flower petal

Felted a scarf, trying out the new wool. When the weather gets warmer, I'll make more of these for Christmas gifts. Felting is a wonderful outside activity. All the nap/shag fly with the wind and don't get in your house, dusting is not what I want to spend my time doing.

Colours used: dark magenta, white, standard yellow and ocher.

Blogging how mutch time does it really take?

I have not blogged a lot. 2 reasons, Mainly because I am not sure that anybody would be interested in reading it AND my English is broken(not good). This week will be a test to see how much time I would use to keep up an OK blog. Hopefully it will take me shorter time keeping up the blog than it takes me to reply to the mail. Why blog now? To get my creativity out there. For those who know me you all know I love to create. I create everyday, it can be an art or craft project or my art journal. Creating is not my problem but getting it out there/here. This week I'll try to show you some of what I do.
