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 28 Busy as a Bee
Week 28 is titled busy as a bee. This fabric was also part of the Cloth Paper Scissors fabric swap. It was so much fun to see what Gina Lehman of Selma, Texas created with her hand painted fabric. She has a background rich in mosaics. Recently she was introduced to quilting, and has fallen in love with fabric. Gina says, "It has opened my eyes to a whole new world of art." She hand painted the fabric with acrylics that were mixed with fabric medium. I added the daisy chain ribbon. The word "fly" was created from precut wood letters that were painted with fabric pain and glimmer mist. The border was finished with a vintage green shag trim. Finally, I was able to add one of my favorite buttons, a brass bee.
