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.

Journal 23 What's your sign?
Week 23 is another journal on a brown grocery bag. This is so addicting. This time I actually used my sketch book for ideas. I had been practicing with the Tulip fabric paint and stencils. I liked this combination of colors. Thus this journal quilt was born. This quilt started with a grocery bag that was sprayed with three colors of tulip fabric paint. (Yellow, orange, green). I then used a stencil with black Tulip fabric paint. I love looking through old books. I found a very cool picture of an astrology wheel. I decoupaged it with some tissue paper in purple and yellow. I added the silver letters which are sewn on as added embellishments. There is a dictionary definition of astrology. Words cut out from old books say "What is your sign?"
