'Peace Felt' Project 2012- Part 1 of 2

Orienting my Peace Felt design underneath the resist...

 
...and outlining it in burgundy pencil roving.

 
Adding an olive branch in green...

 
...and a dot of black for the eye!

 
After the application of one layer of pink roving...

...a flip to 'side two' reveals the design through the plastic.

 
Back on side one, here's a peek through the first layer of roving to the design beneath.

 
After completing the layout...

...a colored dot is my signal to 'cut on this side'.

 
Removing the foam resist.

 
For this year's Peace Felt Project...

...I made a journal cover decorated with iconic symbols of peace.

Working 'inside-out', as usual...

...I outlined the dove and peace sign in pencil roving.

Because the design had to be laid out 'upside-down'...

...and left-to-right reversed...

...it was a little tricky to do and required my full concentration. :)

Next time: the finished journal...

...with hand-dyed leather bookmark.

Upside down and inside out is certainly a challenge - I do hope no-one disturbed you!

Love how you made the design.

psst...I'm going to felt an experiment this weekend inspired by you. I promise to post regardless of the way it turns out ;-)

Tricky enough to do on the right side let alone inside out and upside down, going to be worth it though :)

Karen---It does take a bit of thought! :)
