More Shells....

I experimented with one of my felt pieces to see if the tiny shells could be attached firmly. The most successful thing I found was 'Trim It' glue which is made for bonding accent beads, sequins and rhinestones to fabric. Well now they can add shells to the list - because it worked really well! This is quite a tiny piece....3" x 2.5"......with all my favourite colours.

The following little collages are 2" x 2" - just the right size for my baby shells.
Don't forget to pop along to The Awfully Big Art Adventure ........ and maybe join in with our challenge?

ooo Linda combining your precious shells with your gorgeous wool piece is a fantastic blend of textures and more! Each of your collage pieces is so very striking as well, the finish on them draws me in.....my wheels are really turning for the ABAA shell challenge!

Heather said...

Your collages are delightful and the little felt piece is a tiny work of art - all my favourite colours too. I have just treated myself to a Clover felting tool with 5 needles and it works a treat. I am hoping to use up some of my silk fibres on the felt.

Lynn said...
