When does the glass become part of the art?
Mystic Spirit is another piece I needle felted. I painted a piece of silk noil. I layed various fibers on it and needle felted the layers together.
If is framed between 2 pieces of glass. When you hang it on the wall you see a little of your wall color between the art and the frame. The white circle is a reflection of the flash. I have not learned how to take photos of something behind glass without getting that glare.
Simple Elegance is another piece I framed between two pieces of glass. It is made from hand dyed fabric and is fused, machine appliqued and hand embroidered. Another spot from the flash.
A nice feature about framing work this way is that when you add your wall color as the back ground they are great on almost any color wall. Both of these will be for sale in the gift shop.
In case you didn't read my blog last night I am asking for feedback about whether or not I should continue with the puzzles. Please read about this at the end of last night's blog and let me know your thoughts. Thank you. I will make my decision when I get more responses.
