I love working with felt. It’s one of the unsung heroes of the crafting world. The fact that it costs about ten cents a sheet may have something to do with it.For this project I used a frame whose glass I accidentally busted trying to fit a bunch of frames from our move into a box. I wanted to do something that would benefit from not being behind a sheet of glass. I used my wood grain contact paper to recover my frame.I free-handed the letters backwards so the pen marks wouldn’t show up on the finished letters.I chose this song lyric from an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros song (side note: I have my guesses why Jade got kicked out of the band but who can replace that voice?).As you can see, I took some creative license with spelling and separating words. It’s art, right?Then I sparingly used some white glue to attach my felt letters to some white poster board. This piece reads a lot better in person. I have to figure out how to photograph it better.The uncovered dimension of the felt helps add to the playfulness. The Hubs definitely was the inspiration for this piece though sometimes I feel like I should swap this piece out for one that says, Home is wherever I’m waiting for you, haha.I haven’t found a permanent home for this piece yet but it makes me smile every time I pass by it. And if the song gets stuck in my head, that’s okay, too.
