I wanted to work with more elements in the foreground than I did in the last felted landscape. I spent a significant amount of time making different polymer 'beads' to add, and felting elements that resemble lichen and moss before I even started to layout the layers and layers of wool for the background.
Now it's finally to a point where most of the wet felting is finished and I have it pinned to the foam backing to start working with layers and layers of needle felting and stitching.
