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 18 Flintstone
Week 18 is a photo journal quilt dedicated to the memory of Flint aka Flintstone. Flint was a golden retriever that I rescued who had a large tumor when I adopted him. He passed after a few happy months with me and his friends. He was such an awesome dog, worthy of so much more than an art quilt. I used photoshop to alter the photo by "painting" it using the mixer brush. I included a great friendship quotation, a dog tag, and old scrabble letters. He will be missed by all.
