My theme could include a lot of texture, hedgehogs are textured with spikes and fluff, even their paw pads would be textured and their noses. Each animal is like this and I thought about texture while I was creating wool and felt samples to distress and explore the texture even more.
This shows some of the wool samples samples that I distressed using some simple cutting techniques and also sewing lines through it and then cutting into the top layer to expose the behind colouring. I think this is called shaneeling (Spelling?) and I think it worked okay. I do like playing with texture and more unusual fabrics for me but I need to think about how to translate this into a more digital setting then.
