Adventures in Wet Felting and New ATC's

I am on vacation for 2 weeks which gives me lots of time to work on projects I've been wanting to try.   I've been hoarding felting supplies in my craft studio for quite some time now.  I decided to give wet felting a try today and put some of those supplies to good use. 

Laying out the wool roving.


Soaping the roving.

Giving it a good scrub on my handy dandy washboard.

The finished piece laying out to dry.

The finished piece isn't perfect.  Notice those little holes in the finished product?  Next time I will have to lay out the roving a little thicker.  I will probably cut this up and use it to embellish an art quilt or brooch after it dries. 

I also participated in another ATC swap held by the Creative Souls NING group.  This month's theme is "Wonderful Words".  Here are my creations:







I received these beautiful ATC's from my swap partner, Corinne Marie, complete with their own little handmade ATC book and envelope:


We were only required to make one ATC for the swap, but like potato chips, you can't stop at just one. :)

Love your blog, thanks for following mine, and I will be visiting your blog from time to time to see what you are up to.

I haven't the time to do art and crafts like I used to, but it's always an inspiration to see others' work! =)
