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.

Week 17 the Bike
Week 17, This was so much fun. I actually was able to use some of the skills I learned in photoshop class. This picture I took in Antigua. I must say, Antigua was not my favorite place, but I did get some fun pictures. This bike was in front of this graffiti ridden metal fence. It was just amazing. I took almost 20 pictures. While in photoshop I was able to "age" the photo by using the pointillize filter under the pixelate menu. I also changed the color saturation. It gives the photo a worn, older look. The picture was then printer on photo-fabric. I then used some scraps of fabric to make this quilt square. I am fascinated with old dictionary pages so a small plastic tag was made using an older dictionary definition of the word bicycle.....
