How I made my sunflower picture

I made my sunflower picture in a very different way to the lavender one.
First I bought some sunflowers and painted them until I got a design I liked.

I then made the sunflowers individually shaping merino wool to form the flowers.

I then layed out a background of hand carded blues and reds.

I placed my sunflower prefelts onto the background until I was happy with the composition.

I then wet the piece and very lightly felted it. This creates a chalky effect.

The finished piece!
