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 quilt journal for week three is a fabric scrapbook page from a recent cruise that I took. In December, we went on the Royal Caribbean Allure. It was a fun filled week with a lot of great memories. The picture of the cruise ship was edited in Photoshop elements utilizing the Artistic Cutout filter. It was stitched onto vintage gold lame and red velvet fabric. The ticket to Maegan's Bay was included. A pocket to hold my room key was made with a dryer sheet and was embellished with beads. Finally, a picture from one of our formal dinners was altered in photoshop elements using sepia tones. Looking forward to week 4!
