Wow! How prolific you are! How many felt pieces do you have going at a time? I have to send a link to your site to my friend Diana - she also specializes in felt and I know she'd love your work as I do.

Re: Your question on my blog - if you click on either of those logos you'll find all the info for both events. I know Día de Bloglandia will take place Nov. 1 & 2 this year, and the shrine auction will be in the spring, but lots of people tie the 2 events together. For the srine project: http://corazon.typepad.com/recuerda_mi_corazon/2009/08/time-to-shrine.html.

The body of work you are building up with painting in felt is quite wonderful - this piece is just splendid.

aleph said...

It´s incredible! I had never seen such a "naturalistic" image on felt, moreover, I didn´t think they were possible. I agree with LK, you are prolific!

Sharon said...

This is wondeful. I love it. Have no idea how to felt but I feel the urge coming on. Good grief I better hold off until I finish what I have started. Your work is fantastic. Sharon

Delphyne said...

That is really beautiful, Jasmine!

Shadow said...

ooooo, very nice!

Jasmine said...

Lulu - Thank you. I'd love to see your friends blog. I love looking at other people felt creations. Anything felt, I love...

Susan - Thank you :)

Aleph - Thank you, I was surprised myself at how this piece turned out.

Sharon - Finish what you are doing before starting, for after felting there is no turning back! You will be hooked. Just look at Grrl and Dog...

Delphyne, Thank you :)

GreenWhisper said...

The Scrybe said...

Amazing, it's unbelievable that this can be done with felt...
My sister is using felt to make a patchwork quilt for the baby she has on the way. I'll have to show her your work, though I doubt she'll be able to create pictures in the way you do, I'm sure she'll find it interesting :)

lynne h said...

oh my gosh, jasmine... your work is exquisite - every single piece! this ram is so, well, perfectly ram like, and it has so much life and energy. wow...

Jasmine said...

Caio - It is a real compliment from an artist such as you :)

Jukka - Me too.

Suzi - Thank you. Nice to see you here.

Green Whisper - You know I took the photo's within moments of each other. I took the felt into the garden (which is very shady) and found a spot of light, unfortunately not big enough for the entire picture. I got one photo and then the sun hid. It's amazing the difference the sun can make when photographing felt.

Scrybe - Congratulations to your sister. If she is anywhere near as talented as you I think she will work magic with felt :)

Lynne - Thank you :) x

Hello Jasmine, Your felting is outstanding and so very realistic and glorious. You have such a natural eye for creating in wool felting. You have definitely found your media in art. Hugs judy

Lise said...

Absolutely stunning! You make lovely work.

Susan Berlien (warmchocmilk) said...

Beautiful. So how does this work? Do you weave it and then shrink it in hot water? My mother made me a feltd bag. She knit it and it was huge and then boiled it.

Assayya said...

she is looking sweet, your welsh sheep.
sweet but also headstrong:))

rosiepink said...

Hello Jasmine. Wow! The ram is beautiful - well done in capturing that look in his eyes. Clicking the image to full-size reveals the stunning colour combo and you just want to run your fingers through its softness!

Tammie Lee said...
