Poppy and Harvest Mouse Wall Hanging – Needle Felted Picture – (click the picture for a closer look!)
This is a needle felted original picture.
This is a mixed media picture. I wet felted the background using a range of different wools, machine embroidered the outline fo the poppies and then needle felted the mice, the petals of the poppies and the wheat. I added some Teeswater Locks to give the picture extra texture. The two sweet little mice are playing among the poppies and wheat.
It is mounted onto a felt covered board with a curved piece of sea bleached driftwood framing the image. There is a hanging loop attached to the back of the picture. The picture including the frame is 30cms wide and 23cms high.
I thoroughly enjoyed making this picture. The wet felting process is highly therapeutic, using soap and water to gently felt the fibres together to make that blurry, muted base for the picture. Then, embroidering the poppies and needle felting the detail of the poppies and bringing the little mice to life with a mix of different fibres to create texture and shadows, it was a pleasure to create!. Thank you for looking at my Harvest Mice and Poppies!
