Needle Felted Pug
OK... I think I can safely say that I am addicted to needle felting wool pugs! I had too much fun! I am going to the yarn store tommrow to see what wool they have.

I continue to learn lots of fun things I can do with my art and photos using Photoshop Elements 4. Here is my first collage. You would not know it from looking at it, but this file has 21 layers to it. The background and textures are created from closeup photos of items around my house. I also used masking techniques and drop shadows to change the lighting and depth on each indiviual item. I had a great time!

Needle Felting
My Polar Bear
I took a needle felting class yesterday. I have always wanted to learn. We had so much fun. It is amazing what you can do with a lump of wool and a needle. You basically sculpt as you stab the wool and hopefully not your fingers. I am sure there will be some wool pugs in my future.
