Elizabeth Armstrong and her felt magic

Hi ya!

Good gracious am I ever running around like a crazy bunny. I rarely go on vacation and now I know why. It's so hard to catch up when I return. It was fun to get away though. ;)

One of the things I wanted to do on vacation was visit an alpaca farm. I'm infatuated with these wonderful creatures. Plus, I am becoming more and more infatuated with wet felting and all the amazing things you can create with wool roving. The farm wasn't open for tours when I was there, so I will have to plan another visit.

Today I would like to introduce you to Elizabeth Armstrong. She is an amazing fiber artist in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. You know I love my Aussie friends to bits!

I purchased Elizabeth's book a few months ago. Oh it ever wonderful!

Her work is so full of color and adventure.

This is a piece she made for a school. How cool is that! I love that it is framed. I'm still thinking about whether or not to frame my art quilts. I'm a neat freak and always think about dust. hee,hee,hee.

Elizabeth teaches classes and sells some of her original pieces.

Hop over and visit her HERE. I know you will enjoy meeting her and if you are in Australia, you might even be able to sign up for one of her classes.

Light, love and hugs to you,

Michelle and the Bunnies

Good morning friend! I do believe I have seen some of her work on some other blogs, or maybe Pinterest.....IS THIS NOT A COOL ART? I really need to SEE how people do this because I can't for the life of me understand how this is done. And alpacas are SOOOOO CUTE and soft!

Welcome home dear one. Anita

Both wet felting and needle felting are easy to do and there are a ton of online instructions. I prefer wet felting's really an individual preference. There are some fabulous artists out there.
