thank you so much babbetto, WIPs, & Lakshmi.  Smiley

alatheia- thanks!  Smiley 'Tencel' is the brand name for what is commonly called 'Lyocell'. I believe it is a by-product of the timber/wood industry. So it would be considered a veggie fibre. Smiley You can google it for more info, lots out there about veggie fibres..Hope that makes sense?
Too bad I didn't get a proper shot of the interior of that blue vessel- inside I used silk noil to make bumpy cloudy textures. looks kind of weird.  Wink

Thanks kindly Radal-  Grin Knowing where I live, you can tell I get lots of inspiration/obsession with the ocean. I can't seem to get enough  Cheesy hahaha.
I also had to try to loosely 'match' them to some of my paintings from the past for the group show they're in--waters, blues, whites, teals, forest, greens, more blues, and shocking purples.

25  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where to buy supplies in Halifax, Nova Scotia on: June 02, 2007 10:34:57 AM
If you check out the sticky at the top of this board (called "resources/supplies" )you can find MANY different places to buy wools in Canada, the U.S. & Europe.


Also try http://www.dreamspinfibres.ca/ The woman who runs this is in Ontario, and is very friendly. Fast shipping and Bee-U-Tee-Ful fibres from local farms and from Australia. 
(I have yet to purchase ANYTHING from eBay, btw.. Wink )

Hope you find what you're looking for!!

pure awesomeness.  Grin

alatheia, I really like how you choose to use a glass vase to felt over top. That is another great way to create a (more functional) vase and play with shape, I love the colours you've chosen. I love bold colours like that.  Smiley

Vildhavre, you just keep getting more and more fun with this. yay. I have to agree with WIP's that this is very Much like spring to me. Lovely composition.  Smiley
Are you keeping your colours very spearate throughout your layers? Or are you using all your colours in each layer? If you use very different colours in each layer, or section, you might have an easier time keeping the colours separate? The wool WILL blend no matter what, but, white or light coloured wools will be more obvious to the eye.
Try 2 very contrasting colours 2 layers on for the interior, and 2 for the exterior and see if that works?

Okay, I've loaded my pics and I can't figure out how to get the pics from flickr here, I dont even know if you can so links (snore) again. sorry.  Undecided




thanks so much for taking the time to look tho. Smiley
Cheers!!
