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 27 Dream
This weeks quilt design used fabric from the cloth paper scissors challenge.
I received this fabric from Lorie Garver of Phoenix Arizona. She considers
her self a self-taught late-blooming dabbler who is having a ball. You can
see that happiness shine through in this fabric. I tend to use more muted
tones, so I was thrilled to see this bright orange fabric with yellow
circles that were stamped with acrylic paint using lids. She then used a
"dream" stamp with coca-cola colored ink. This was a great addition, and
used one of my all time favorite words. I took the fabric and used thread
painting to highlight the flowers. This was done using a variegated rayon
thread. I then had the "dream" chipboard piece from a scrap booking set.
That was added as a final embellishment. The edges were finished with a
bright organ polka dot ribbon. Lorie thanks so much for sharing and allowing me to use your fabric in my quilt square and blog! Much continued success.
May everyone have sweet dreams.....
