Welcome!

Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

The color "Poppy"

Poppy Perfection was the name of the contest by Somerset Studio. I typically use muted colors in the cream family. This challenged sounded well, like a challenge. I have a love for found objects and finding unique ways to incorporate them in projects. I thoroughly enjoyed using the wool to make her hair. I had acquired that treasure through an organization called Rug Works that was based in Cross Village Michigan.
