Happy Birthday, Elmer!

It’s Elmer the Elephants 25th birthday! Made this felted Elmer in celebration! The only colour I didn’t have was orange.

Inspired!

Today I am feeling greatly inspired with ideas thanks to this book:

The Private Life Of An English Field Meadowland – John Lewis-Stempel.

With this book, alongside Where My Wellies Take Me – Olivia Lomenech Gill, I have a clear vision what I want to be doing for the next few projects.

Keep an eye out!

Felted Books – Cosy Classics

It is hard to find books on the internet with felted illustrations, and even harder to find in stores.

There are not enough felted illustration books out there!

Very few I have found. But what ones I have, I feel inspired to pursue my passion to create felted illustrations for books! (and very inspired to buy them all!)

The latest discovery is Cosy Classics, a few classic stories illustrated with felt! (I have bought Pride and Prejudice)

Bit More Zen Doodle

Zen Doodle is suppose to be relaxing, but I concentrated too much on copying the patterns here, and the one top right certainly got me fustrated.

Zen Doodling

This started with one continuous line that mindlessly squiggled around the page, and then filled in with various patterns and lines. I find it helps me relieve a bit of stress when I don’t think of what I’m doing while zen doodling.
