Mixed Media Monday - The Human Body or Parts Thereof

This week on Mixed Media Monday we have yet another talented guest host, Jennifer. Jennifer has chosen "the human body or parts thereof" for her challenge. I took the opportunity offered to play with some needle felting. I did some needle felting a few years back, mainly little bears and such, and then sold all of my supplies (groan). Now I've decided I want to play with it some more, and do some flat work as well - so I'm busily buying supplies again. This ATC was made by needle felting onto an ATC sized piece of felt. The face is paper clay, which I painted.

How interesting! I have no idea what needle felting is, so I'm not sure what I'm seeing. Looks very complicated to me!
