So I took some things!
It is a stone I collected from my beach!
First I covered it with wet felted wool, a technique I learnt from this tutorial and I admit Lisa's stones have been an inspiration for some time now!
Then I glued some sea glass and broken shells smoothed by sea waves and then stitched one by one tiny seed beads or bigger glass beads to make a flowing pattern of water coming on the sand and leaving behind some sea treasures.
That was the idea!
I was over enthusiastic with it and started making some more stones!
Of course Barca had to inspect them and give her consent on my making some more!
The first to give me feedback was Frieda, my friend from Skiathos and my dear Marabeth from the States.I gave Frieda this stone which she liked very much.
I have always had something with stones. I always loved collecting them and I always admired people who painted them or covered them in all kinds of ways.
I love Margie's crocheted stones which have inspired lots more people afterwards, and I am so happy I am the proud owner of one of her bigger pieces too!
And I always admired Paula's beautiful porcelain stones which of course I cannot make.
And I love all the beautiful painted stones that so many artists make, like Geninne, and have been so inspired by Lisa's wet felted embroidered stones maybe because I do cross stitch and use threads. Lisa is an expert in wet felting and needle felting and only recently did I manage to buy one of her stones which I will show you when it arrives.
Being inspired by Lisa of lilfishstudios I showed her first my stones and explained what I am doing so that to tell her that she was my inspiration and she was so sweet to let me know that she liked that.
Thank you goes to all inspiring ladies I mentioned so far!
So here are the stones you will find on my thalasseaglass which I have neglected so much!
I will be adding one stone to the shop everyday for a few days!
And of course to start this new enterprise in a beautiful way I am giving away one of my stones to a lucky follower!
This one that so reminds me of a sea anemone!
thalasseaglass on etsy and/or facebook and please feel free to share the giveaway!
I will choose a winner on Wednesday June 5th World Environment Day at 5 in the afternoon local time (Greece).
