Again I wanted a quick fix. I enjoyed using the prefelts for the koi and decided to do similar this week.
I sketched a barn owl onto prefelt using a fine liner pen.. then cut him out
This time I wanted to try and get a 'carved' appearance.. almost like a wood cut effect. So I cut the face out, then cut holes for the eyes and beak. Also cut along the wing line and his legs are separate pieces.
Laid out of a dark background.. with a super simple branch and mawata silk moon
I placed a net over before starting rubbing to keep the design in place
While felting I had to keep opening up the holes and cut lines that I wanted to keep
I'm quite pleased with him,
the slightly fuzzy features work for me - it is night after all..
and everythings fuzzy at night :)
