I then cut leaves out of my yellow wools, as well as some bamboo and tencel fibers. The tencel takes a while to felt into the wool, but it will eventually.
I then added some brown as shadows on the tree trunks and started adding branches in black.
I then will take a black pencil and draw in additional branches and any changes I want to make and go back to my felt and finalize the design.
Here is it is prior to felting.
After felting: (It was overcast today and the color looks washed out). It is about 24" x 36".
I am undecided about adding any additional yellow highlights to the leaves or whether I will free-motion stitch some leaf shapes in the yellow part. Right now I like it as it is.
